My thanks to the El Paso Rotary Club and the Hoopeston Lions Club for giving me the opportunity to visit with each of them and provide a Springfield update. There is a lot going on in state government these days, and I really appreciate getting the chance to stop in and meet with our many active civic groups.
It’s my job not only to report to the people of the 106th district on what is happening in Springfield, but also to hear your questions and concerns and do my best to answer them. These meetings always produce a lot of good questions and conversations, and sometimes even ideas for new or better legislation. Thanks to everyone who joins a local civic group and works to make our communities better places to live, and thanks to those who have shared their questions and comments about state government with me over the course of the summer. I enjoy hearing from you.
