Local legislators will host a series of town hall meetings to receive feedback from the people they represent.

Sen. Pam Althoff, R-McHenry, and Rep. Steve Reick, R-Woodstock, are hosting the meetings for residents of the 32nd Senate District and the 63rd House District, according to a news release from the Illinois General Assembly.

“Serious issues affecting taxpayers and families are being debated in Springfield, and I want to hear the opinions and priorities of the people I represent,” Althoff said in a statement. “It is my hope that my constituents will find the date and location that works best for them and come out and learn about current issues and provide their input.”

The town hall meetings will start at 6:30 p.m. and include a short presentation by the legislators, followed by a Q&A session.

“I’m looking forward to joining Sen. Althoff at this series of meetings,” Reick said in a statement. “This will be an opportunity for citizens to let us know what issues are important to them and discuss with us the means by which we can address them. As the Springfield voice for those living in the 63rd District, this is an ideal way to hear what the district is thinking with regard to taxes, the receipt of state services and other quality of life issues.”

RSVPs are not required for the event. For information, call Althoff’s office at 815-455-6330 or Reick’s office at 815-880-5340.
