Arnold Kanter - Governor Jim Edgar Project

After graduating from Chicago-Kent College of Law in 1968, Arnold Kanter spent over twenty years practicing law for the U.S. Attorney's office and various private law firms. A Chicago native, Kanter used his intimate knowledge of the city to lead Jim Edgar's 1990 campaign efforts there. When Governor Edgar took office in 1991, he named Kanter as chief counsel for his administration. Kanter served in this role until his resignation in late 1992.
