HILLSIDE, Ill. – State Rep. Emanuel “Chris” Welch, D-Hillside, spoke at the Paul Simon Institute of Public Policy as part of their Pizza and Politics program on Monday, focusing on bipartisanship in today’s polarized political landscape.
“During a time when partisan politics are dominating political discourse, now more than ever is it important that leaders on both sides of the aisle work together to solve the problems facing our communities,” Welch said. “I would like to thank the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute for inviting me to speak, as well as the students and community members that attended.”
The Paul Simon Public Policy Institute is a nonpartisan “think-tank” at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. The Institute’s “Pizza and Politics” program is a set of open events, primarily targeted for students, to engage in a free-flowing discussion led by an expert, professor, lawmaker or media figure. Speakers discuss public service, advocacy and important issues facing the state.
