AUDIO REPLAY: Tele-Town Hall Reaches Over 1,600 Participants!

Thank you to everyone who was able to join us Tuesday Evening for a Telephone Town Hall that included a legislative session update, some live poll questions, and an opportunity for constituents to ask questions. We had 1,616 live participants throughout the hour-long event with a peak gathering of 1,334 constituents at one time.

Many people had the same or similar questions with the topic of budget priorities and money being spent on illegal (undocumented) migrants being enticed to come to Illinois because of the “sanctuary state” status currently in place. Other questions included topics such as “how to fight nursing home voting fraud,” “the Alton Lock & Dam hydroelectric potential,” “the status of repealing gun bans,” and “who is replacing businesses like John Deere that is leaving the state.”
