President Joe Moon
I started my career with the Illinois State Police in 1999. After the academy, I was assigned to District 21 patrol and later transferred to District 14 Patrol. While in District 14 patrol, I was a K-9 Handler. I transferred to Zone 4 investigations in 2006. I worked as a General Criminal Agent and then as an Agent in the West Central Illinois Drug Task Force. In 2009 I transferred back to District 14 patrol where I worked until being appointed to Troopers Lodge 41 Secretary in April of 2011 and assigned as a full time officer in the Lodge. I was re-elected to the office of Secretary in 2012.
Prior to being elected as your President, I served as Secretary, First Vice President, and was a trustee representing District 14 for over 7 years. I have served as the Chairman of the Constitution and By-Laws Committee and as a member of the Steering Committee, Election Committee, Building and Grounds Committee and Executive Committee. I have had the distinct privilege to represent the Lodge at several State and National Conferences and National Police Memorials. I have testified on behalf of Troopers Lodge 41 at the Illinois Capital on issues including pensions, wages and funding for manpower.
I have assisted in fighting the anti-labor movement on a National level going to Ohio with the National Troopers Coalition to fight to repeal Senate Bill 5, a measure that restricted collective bargaining rights for more than 360,000 public employees. Senate Bill 5 was ultimately repealed due to labor organizations standing together on a National level.
As your President, I will continue to serve the members of this Lodge, both active and retired. I believe in always protecting the members' contractual rights as well as the rights earned by retirees. As your President, I will always strive to represent you to the best of my ability.
