State Rep. Deb Conroy (D-Elmhurst) invites the community to join her for the grand opening of her new constituent services office from 3 to 6 p.m. Friday, Feb. 22, at 28 S. Villa Ave., Villa Park. A portion of Elmhurst's west side is located in the 46th District, which is represented by Conroy.
“I invite residents to become familiar with my office and feel comfortable coming to us with their concerns, questions and suggestions,” she said. “My top priority as state Representative is to be accessible. I want my constituents to know that my door is always open and I am always ready to listen.”
Residents will have the opportunity to meet with Conroy and her staff and learn how her office can assist the community on state issues.
“Given the enormous challenges we face at the state level, it is important to work together to do what is right for our community,” Conroy said. “I am looking forward to this opportunity to meet more of my neighbors and begin building the community partnerships we so desperately need to put the state back on track.”
Conroy also is putting together several citizen advisory committees to help formulate her legislative agenda in Springfield.
“You don’t need to be an expert to have a point of view that deserves to be shared. I invite all those interested in making a difference to join one of the advisory committees,” she said.
The committees are open to all residents of the 46th District. They will focus on: senior issues, education, economic development and business, veterans, public safety, health care and young families. The scheduling of the committee meetings will be announced in the weeks to come.
“Illinois is facing serious challenges, and we must begin to solve them by listening to all voices and encouraging open, honest discussions,” she said.
The 46th District is located entirely within DuPage County, including all of Glendale Heights and Villa Park and smaller portions of Bloomingdale, Carol Stream, Glen Ellyn, Elmhurst, Addison, Lombard and Oakbrook Terrace.
