SCHAUMBURG, Ill. – State Rep. Michelle Mussman, D-Schaumburg, added another stop to her district-wide town hall tour by listening to the concerns and suggestions of her neighbors in the Schaumburg Township gymnasium this week. Mussman summarized the fall veto session during which Republicans and Democrats overrode Gov. Bruce Rauner on 18 separate occasions.
“We had a good conversation about the challenges of providing our youth a quality education that puts them on the pathway to a good job and not mired in debt, and how businesses also are in eager need of these employees as the Baby Boomer generation retires. I share residents’ concerns over how to keep Illinois a competitive place for businesses to thrive in and fears about how they could be impacted by changes to the federal tax and healthcare plans,” said Mussman. “We also touched on their desire to see that Illinois responsibly plans for and cares for those with disabilities, mental health concerns, veterans and the elderly. To help residents keep more of their own money, we also talked about efforts to freeze property taxes and increase their exemptions.”
Mussman’s full-time constituent service office is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. and can be reached at 847-923-9104.

Mussman serves the 56th District, which includes portions of Schaumburg, Hoffman Estates, Elk Grove Village, Hanover Park, Roselle, Rolling Meadows, and Palatine.
