Local Residents will have an opportunity this month to learn more about Illinois finances and the state budget stalemate at a special Budget Town Hall hosted by State Representative Jeanne Ives that will feature State Comptroller Leslie Geissler Munger.
Representative Ives’ Budget Town Hall will be held on Tuesday, April 26th from 7:00pm to 9:00pm in room 411 of Goodwin Hall on the Benedictine University Campus located at 5700 College Road in Lisle. Representative Ives and Comptroller Munger will both provide updates on the budget, and will take questions from those in attendance.
“We’re in our tenth month without an adopted state budget. Local taxpayers have a right to know what’s going on, and to be able to ask questions and to let us know how they’re being impacted. That’s the purpose of this town hall, and we’re very fortunate to be getting an update directly from Comptroller Munger. No one has a better understanding of our day-to-day financial situation,” Representative Ives said. “I hope everyone with concerns or questions will join us on the 26th.”
Representative Ives stressed that the Budget Town Hall is open to the public and no registration or RSVP is required.
