EVERGREEN PARK, Ill. – State Rep. Kelly Burke, D-Evergreen Park, and state Sen. Bill Cunningham, D-Chicago, are inviting residents to discuss issues facing the state and local communities at a Meet and Greet on Thursday, Oct. 19 at 6:30 p.m. at the District 124 Administrative Center, located at 2929 W. 87th Street in Evergreen Park.
“These casual meet and greets give me the chance to speak with residents one-on-one about the issues affecting their families,” Burke said. “I’m also looking forward to talking with families about the bipartisan education funding reform measure we recently passed and our efforts to protect local jobs by repealing the beverage tax.”
Burke and Cunningham are inviting residents to stop by and discuss local and state issues in a casual setting. They will also provide a brief legislative update and discuss the latest news from Springfield. Burke will also be collecting signatures in support of her legislation to repeal the Cook County beverage tax. Those unable to attend can add their name to her petition by calling Burke’s constituent service office at 708-425-0571, or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Being accessible legislators is priority for us,” Cunningham said. “Our ‘Meet and Greet’ events are designed for our constituents to ask questions and provide us with suggestions in an informal and friendly setting.”
