(Published June 13, 2019)
State Rep. Kam Buckner, D-Chicago, is asking residents to join him for a “Coffee Talk” on Saturday, June 22 from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Dollop, located at 345 E. Ohio St. in Streeterville, to provide an update about the progress that has been made in Springfield during the legislative session.
“Over the past six months, the Illinois legislature made unprecedented strides toward progress for the people of Illinois,” Buckner said. “We implemented a balanced budget that invests more in schools and healthcare, passed a capital plan that will fund improvements to our crumbling infrastructure and ensured that women’s reproductive rights will be protected no matter what happens in Washington. I’m looking forward to discussing what all of this means for our community and hearing feedback about what needs to be done next session.”
Buckner’s 26th District contains all or parts of Bronzeville, Gold Coast, Grand Boulevard, Greater Grand Crossing, Hyde Park, Kenwood, Oakland, South Chicago, South Loop, South Shore, Streeterville and Woodlawn.
