Illinois State House District 62 issued the following announcement on Oct. 11
As part of his efforts to be an open and accessible legislator, state Rep. Sam Yingling, D-Grayslake, will be holding a Coffee with Sam event on Saturday, Oct. 19 from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Main Street Café, located at 202 E. Main Street in Round Lake Park. At the event, attendees will be able to talk with Yingling while enjoying a complimentary cup of coffee.
“With all the new laws being passed over the last session, I am looking for feedback from my constituents now more than ever,” Yingling said. “I am looking forward to sitting down with members of the community and hearing what they would like for me to work on going forward.”
Since the end of the legislative session, Yingling has made it a priority to hear the thoughts and opinions from people and organizations throughout his district. In addition to previous Coffee with Sam events, Yingling also hosts town halls and seminars to interact with constituents on a variety of topics. Yingling also has visited libraries, hospitals, park districts and businesses throughout the district in an effort to get as much feedback and hear as many voices as possible.
“Hearing from those around my district helps me craft my legislative agenda more than anything,” Yingling said. “Thank you to everyone who has reached out to my office or me and voiced their ideas about what they would like to see from their state government.”
For any questions or to RSVP, please contact Yingling’s constituent service office at 847-231-6262 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
