NAPERVILLE, Ill. – As a new state representative, Janet Yang Rohr, D-Naperville, is developing her office to ensure that residents throughout the community have access to important state services. With her business experience, she is committed to maintaining an office that puts professionalism and efficiency first and foremost.
“When speaking with residents, one of their biggest concerns is how the state manages services for taxpayers,” said Yang Rohr. “As highlighted by the last year, people have had serious difficulties in getting access to unemployment services through IDES, as well as other services that the state commits to offer but, unfortunately, fails to deliver. By using my experience in the business world, I will work with my colleagues in Springfield to develop real solutions to these problems, and create an office that prioritizes constituent services, no matter what.”
Yang Rohr, who has been in the financial sector for nearly 20 years, will use her background to hire and maintain staff members who understand the key issues of the district and are committed to public service. In addition, she is enthusiastic to announce that the legislative role of Chief of Staff will be held by long time Naperville resident, Donna Wandke. Yang Rohr is also developing an internship program where local students can work in her office to learn more about state government. Her team will not only be assisting residents access essential services but will also be hosting and planning events that are informative and keep lines of communication open with her office so that Yang Rohr can introduce policies in Springfield that adequately represent the most important issues facing the community.
“I chose to run for state representative because I genuinely believe in the important role that public service plays in everyone’s life,” said Yang Rohr. “My team and I will always prioritize the needs of our community. By working together and developing innovative solutions to the serious problems facing our state, we can build a stronger Illinois for everyone.”
