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 Saturday, Nov. 4 from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. at the Chicago Ridge Public Library, located at 10400 South Oxford Ave. in Chicago Ridge.
“One of my top goals is being easily accessible to the families I represent and providing them with the latest news,” Burke said. “I am greatly concerned about President Trump’s proposed tax plan that would raise taxes on middle-class families, while giving huge tax breaks to millionaires and billionaires.”
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 urging Illinois’ congressional delegation to oppose Trump’s tax increase on middle-class families. 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 email@example.com.
“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.”
