BLOOMINGDALE, Ill. – State Rep. Diane Pappas, D-Itasca, is hosting a meet and greet open to all constituents of the 45th District. “Pastries with Pappas” will take place on Saturday, May 11 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Hanover Park District, located at 1919 Walnut Ave. in Hanover Park.
“I have made it a priority to host open forums for my constituents to discuss any legislative issues or concerns they have,” said Pappas. “Having a conversation in person is an effective way to turn the daily frustrations people face into creative legislative solutions, and I look forward to hearing any ideas may have.”
Pappas will be working in Springfield for the duration of May, and she wants to get feedback from residents about issues that may arise during this last month of session. In her first months in office, she has hosted several meetings with residents throughout the district. Pappas will continue to meet with district residents throughout the year, even after the General Assembly session is done.
“I urge all interested constituents and their families to join me to discuss their most important issues over coffee and pastries,” said Pappas. “The state faces many different challenges, and the best way to overcome those difficulties is to get feedback from all residents on what improvements they would like to see in the community and throughout the state.”
