LIBERTYVILLE, Ill. – Focusing on remaining accessible, state Rep. Mary Edly-Allen, D-Libertyville, is hosting several opportunities for residents to ask questions and receive assistance with state issues during September.

“Throughout the summer I’ve been working hard to connect with local residents by knocking on doors, hosting events and meeting in-person constituents,” said Edly-Allen. “It’s important that people see firsthand their government and their representatives are accessible and responsive. As veto session approaches, it is necessary to hear from families about our community’s priorities.”

Rep. Edly-Allen will be available to listen to constituent ideas as well as answer any questions in a more personal conversation.
