Morris, Wilmington Town Hall Meetings Postponed as Governor Calls 10-Day Special Session

MORRIS– State Representative David A. Welter (R-Morris) has announced that his upcoming town hall meetings scheduled in Morris and Wilmington have been postponed following today’s proclamation from Governor Rauner calling the Illinois General Assembly back to Springfield for a 10-day special session starting on June 21 with the goal of passing a balanced state budget.

“I am glad the Governor is calling us back to Springfield next week to work toward passing a balanced state budget,” Representative Welter said. “We are rapidly approaching a tipping point as a state beyond which the damage may be irreparable – unless we come together at this critical juncture to pass a balanced budget. I am eager to work with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to achieve this goal together.”

Representative Welter’s previously scheduled Town Hall Meetings at White Oak School in Morris on Wednesday, June 21 and at Wilmington Middle School in Wilmington on Thursday, June 22 have been postponed until further notice. Welter’s Town Hall Meetings in Seneca on June 15 and Plano on June 19 will continue as scheduled.

“I look forward to communicating directly with local residents and listening to their feedback at our town hall meetings in Seneca and Plano before next week’s special session; and keeping constituents from throughout the district informed of progress while I am in Springfield during the last ten days of June.”

 For questions or more information, please call Representative Welter’s office at (815) 416-1475.
