ROUND LAKE BEACH, Ill. – State Rep. Sam Yingling, D-Grayslake, hosted an Emergency Town Hall with representatives of the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) and local seniors at the Round Lake Area Park District’s Robert W. Rolek Community Center.

“Illinois’ budget crisis has created a dire situation for our older neighbors. Because Governor Rauner has failed to do his job and propose a responsible budget, 22,000 seniors have already lost access to Meals on Wheels and another 100,000 risk losing critical care that helps them remain in their homes. Seniors in our area should not be forced to pay for Springfield’s dysfunction,” Yingling said. “With this in mind, I hosted an emergency town hall with one of our districts largest senior groups to better address their concerns and priorities before returning to Springfield for the governor’s special session.”


Cynthia Cunningham of AARP and Rep. Yingling speak to local seniors during an emergency town hall meeting to discuss the governor’s proposed changes to home care for aging residents.
