Public Assets is the web site of Tom Tresser, Public Defender. We are part of a new coalition, The Illinois Coalition to Protect the Public Commons, a growing coalition of activists and community organizers who all have one thing in common – fighting privatization, protecting the commons and fighting for public services.
