COLLINSVILLE, Ill. – To provide an opportunity for residents to express their concerns about state and local issues, state Rep. Katie Stuart, D-Edwardsville, will be hosting her third annual Holiday Open House on Thursday, Dec. 12 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at her district office, located at 2105 Vandalia Street, Unit 16 in Collinsville.
“After the Fall Veto Session, I want to talk to residents about any concerns that they have regarding what happened or any suggestions they might have for further changes that can be made to build a stronger Illinois,” said Stuart. “Although it’s a busy time with the holidays approaching, I encourage everyone to come by to chat and enjoy holiday treats.”
Stuart’s constituent office in Collinsville provides services to constituents such as help with Firearm Owner Identification (FOID) Card applications, connecting with state agencies, and free notary services. This winter, Stuart has also been collecting hats, gloves, and scarves to provide warm clothing items to members in the community in need through the organization Making a Difference in Collinsville. Warm clothing items are greatly appreciated and can be brought to the office if desired, but they are not required.
“The holiday season is the perfect time to give back to those in need, especially as the temperatures start to drop.” continued Stuart. “Whether you want to come by to donate new or gently used items or to talk about the upcoming legislative session, I encourage everyone to come by my Open House.”
