ROCKFORD, Ill. – As part of his efforts to be accessible to his constituents, state Rep. Dave Vella, D-Rockford, is hosting a Donuts with Dave event to meet with residents and hear their thoughts and opinions on his work in Springfield.
“With the many issues that our community is facing, it is more important than ever for residents to voice their opinions and talk to their representatives about what they would like to see from their state government,” said Vella. “I highly encourage residents to join me for a cup of coffee and donuts and let me know what issues matter most to them.”
The Donuts with Dave event will take place on Saturday, Aug. 7 from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Meg’s Daily Grind, located at 1141 N Alpine Road in Rockford. Hosting the Donuts with Dave event is just one way that Vella is working to meet with constituents this summer. He recently held an Ice Cream Social, supporting a local small business while giving residents an opportunity to share their thoughts with him. Vella will be holding additional events throughout the summer in order to ensure residents have ample opportunities to meet with him.
“Nothing informs my work in Springfield more than the thoughts and needs of my constituents,” said Vella. “I look forward to using these upcoming months to talk with residents and hear their feedback on what I can do to be the best representative for them in Springfield.”
