State Representative Litesa Wallace (D-Rockford) will be holding a town hall meeting on Monday at 6 p.m. in the auditorium of the E.J. “Zeke” Giorgi Center, 200 S. Wyman St. During this meeting Wallace will speak to as well as listen to residents.

“The past few weeks have been eventful in Springfield, and I have heard from many residents who have questions and concerns,” Wallace said. “This town hall meeting is an opportunity for me to give a thorough explanation of what has happened at the Capitol, as well as what it means for Rockford moving forward.”

Wallace will begin the meeting with a legislative update, explaining the state’s current budget positioning as well as the ongoing process being used to negotiate the impasse. Other initiatives such as property tax freezes, criminal reform, and school funding will also be discussed. Those attending are encouraged to ask questions and engage in the discussion.

“As we enter the summer, this town hall meeting is the first in a series of outreach initiatives to be conducted with residents over the coming months,” Wallace said. “I remain committed to voting for and serving in the best interest of my constituents, and that will require continuous engagement. I look forward to the discussion.”
