State Representative David Harris met with constituents and other local residents on January 14th at the Arlington Heights Memorial Library’s “Meet Your Legislator” Day.Other state legislators and representatives from federal congressional offices were also in attendance.
Over 50 individuals came to the event to discuss policy issues, to share concerns and opinions on matters of public policy, and to get to know their local representatives. The event lasted for three hours, and library officials were pleased with the turnout for this initial event. Plans are already in the works to make the meet-and-greet an annual event to foster improved communication between elected officials at state and national levels and their constituents.
“I applaud the Arlington Heights Memorial Library for arranging this “Meet Your Legislator Day,” said Harris. “Citizens need to opportunities such as this to meet their elected officials.”
