Christmas greetings from the Ives family to yours! We have been busy decorating the house for the holidays and celebrating our family traditions this time of year. At the same time, my work as your voice in state government and shining a light on issues important to families and taxpayers never slows down. In this week’s update, I share some recent news articles I thought you might find interesting.

A quick reminder that tomorrow, Tuesday, December 12 is your last chance this year to meet with me in-person at the Wheaton Public Library to ask questions and discuss state legislative issues of concern at my final Mobile Office Hours of 2017. I will be at the Wheaton Public Library from 9:00am – 10:00am Tuesday morning if you would like to stop by. The Library address is 225 N Cross Street in Wheaton.

Thank you to everyone who has offered your input and took time out of your mornings to meet with me at any of my Mobile Office Hours this fall, which have been held every other Tuesday and one Saturday each month since the first week of October. It has truly been a pleasure sitting down with constituents face to face, listening to your concerns and answering your questions about legislation and state policy.
