Join us for our annual Legislative Update, Monday, July 18th, 6:30 p.m. (food and refreshments) 7:15 p.m. (meeting), at the 49th Ward Democratic Party Office, 1774 W. Greenleaf (at Ravenswood).
With the budget crisis coming to a head and critical programs facing the budget axe, Illinois is facing a financial crisis the likes of which have not been seen in over 70 years. What can be done to put Illinois back on track fiscally without jeopardizing important programs and services to the state's most vulnerable populations? Is expanded legalized gambling part of the solution or will it only make our problems worse? And what about re-districting? What impact will the new congressional and legislative maps have on the future direction of our state and nation?
Hear perspectives from two of the state's most progressive legislators.
We look forward to seeing you at a very exciting and informative meeting!
