Wanting to hear from residents, state Rep. Brandon Phelps, D-Harrisburg, will be holding satellite office hours in Carbondale on Monday, April 25th from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Civic Center, located at 200 S Illinois Ave. in Carbondale
“Illinois is facing many issues and I want to hear from residents about their concerns and give them an opportunity to voice their opinions,” Phelps said. “My job is to advocate for folks in Southern Illinois and the best way to do so is to hear from them directly.”
Phelps wants to ensure that his constituent service office is open and accessible to all the residents of the 118th District, especially those in Jackson County. Phelps wants to provide an opportunity for constituents to be able to stop by and talk to him or his staff about any questions, concerns or issues they may have regarding Illinois or the local community.
“I know how difficult it can be for people to stop by my district office in Harrisburg, and so I want to give folks the option to stop by in Carbondale and take advantage of our state office,” Phelps said. “This office belongs to the taxpayers and it’s important that everyone in the 11 counties that I represent is able to take advantage of the resources we offer. So please stop by, ask questions and let me know how you feel about issues important to Southern Illinois.”
Phelps represents the 118th District in the Illinois General Assembly, which includes all or portions of Alexander, Gallatin, Hamilton, Hardin, Jackson, Johnson, Massac, Pope, Pulaski, Saline and Union counties.
