ROUND LAKE BEACH, Ill. – State Rep. Sam Yingling, D-Grayslake, is partnering with leaders from the Illinois Environmental Council and the Sierra Club for a public discussion with local residents about ways to promote green jobs and protect our environment on Wednesday, June 13 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Byron Colby Barn located at 1561 Jones Point Rd. in Grayslake.
“Focusing on greener energy and working to ensure greater protections for Lake County’s abundant system of forest preserves and waterways is very important to local residents,” Yingling said. “My annual forum on environmental issues allows me to continue my collaborative efforts with constituents and experts in environmental advocacy to discuss future policy solutions. It also helps me maximize my availability to the people I serve by providing more, open and transparent forums for them to share their ideas with me. “
Yingling’s environmental forum presents residents with an opportunity to learn and share their thoughts and concerns about environmental issues facing the state. Representatives from the Illinois Environmental Council and the Sierra Club will be available to provide updates on legislation and policy pending in Springfield and answer environmental questions from attendees.
“Advancing green energy and applying it throughout the state will protect our precious natural resources, while boosting the economy through newly created jobs,” Yingling added. “By integrating clean energy into more public buildings, Illinois can become a leader in habitat preservation and a model in economic leadership.”
