The 3750 Speakers’ Series presents:
AN EVENING WITH OUR STATE SENATOR
President, Illinois Senate
Wednesday, 7:30p, July 17th
The Illinois Legislature’s spring session has ended, and after four years of gridlock it passed sweeping legislation at a pace The New York Times called “startling.”
It passed a statute to make abortion a fundamental women’s right.
It raised the minimum wage in Illinois to $15 an hour by 2025.
It became the nation’s first legislature to legalize both the sale and possession of marijuana without a statewide ballot initiative.
It reached a bipartisan agreement on a nearly $45 billion state construction plan.
It approved a massive expansion of gambling in the state.
It agreed to ask voters next year to amend the Illinois Constitution to establish a graduated-rate income tax to replace the mandated flat-rate tax.
At the center of this tsunami of state action is a legislator who has served as President of the Illinois Senate since 2009 and represented our 6th District since 1991, State Senator John Cullerton. A former Cook County public defender, Cullerton’s political career began in 1978 when he was elected to the Illinois House. In 1991 he was appointed to the state Senate to fill the seat of Dawn Clark Netsch.
This is your chance to ask questions of the Senate President who has done so much to make Illinois what it is today.
As far as we can tell, this is the first time that State Sen. Cullerton has been asked to speak directly to his constituents at 3750. In an attempt to guarantee that the venue is big enough for the number of attendees, please RSVP and notify us of the names of all who will attend, noting non-resident invitees. Send your RSVP to email@example.com and include the questions you would like to ask Senator Cullerton.
OPEN TO THE ENTIRE 3750 COMMUNITY AND THEIR FRIENDS
