ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. – Committed to meeting with residents of his district, state Rep. Mark Walker, D-Arlington Heights, is inviting the public to a Coffee and Conversation event on Oct. 26 from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Panera Bread located at 5 W. Rand Rd. in Arlington Heights.
“With the General Assembly meeting for our fall veto session at the end of the month, my Coffee and Conversation event is an excellent opportunity to meet with me to share your concerns as we take on more legislation,” Walker said. “While the veto session is much shorter than spring session, there are many critical issues that may be addressed, such as climate change, gun control and gambling regulations.”
The Coffee and Conversation event is an informal opportunity for residents to meet with Walker to discuss the issues that matter most to them and any concerns they may have. Additionally, Walker’s office will also be hosting a number of Satellite Office Hours through the rest of the year. Representatives from Walker’s office will be at the Arlington Heights Memorial Library Nov. 6 and Dec. 4, and at the Mount Prospect Public Library Nov. 21 and Dec. 19. All Satellite Office Hours are from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Satellite Office Hours are another opportunity for constituents to express their thoughts about state issues or to receive help with state services.
“Whether it’s a coffee event or our Satellite Office Hours, I’m committed to hosting opportunities to meet with residents,” Walker said. “With a busy spring session and many issues left to address in upcoming sessions, it’s important for everyone to stay involved and informed in the process.”
