Citadel Chief's Wife Launches News Site

Jun 5 2012 | 1:23pm ET

The wife of Citadel Investment Group founder Kenneth Griffin is set to start a news Web site dedicated to promoting political and fiscal "reform" in the Midwest.

Anne Dias Griffin, a hedge fund manager herself, is behind Reboot Illinois. The Web site will aggregate news content and offer some original commentary. A Griffin family spokesman told the Chicago Tribune that Reboot Illinois would be non-partisan, although the Griffins' Republican leanings are well-known.

And, indeed, Reboot Illinois sounds as though it will lean to the right as well, promising to seek "political, educational and fiscal reform in Illinois and the Midwest."

"I have met so many people—educators, lawmakers, academics, concerned parents—who are working hard to solve our city and state's educational and fiscal challenges," Griffin, who runs Chicago-based Aragon Global Management, said. "Reboot Illinois is a forum for them to congregate, exchange views and work toward a better Illinois."

Neither Aragon nor Kenneth Griffin are affiliated with the new for-profit site, the family spokesman said.
