Wallace Invites Community to Katie's Cup for Tuesday Coffee Shop Stop

ROCKFORD, Ill. – State Rep. Litesa Wallace, D-Rockford, is inviting 
residents to discuss state and local issues with her at a Coffee Shop 
Stop on Tuesday, Dec. 20 at 10 a.m. at Katie's Cup, located at 502 7th 
St. in Rockford.

"As we gear up for the new legislative session, I want to hear directly 
from taxpayers what they want to see happen in Springfield," Wallace 
said. "I want to make sure legislators are working for the people, and 
being open and transparent is one step to make that happen."

Wallace will provide a legislative update about recent activity in 
Springfield, and how Rockford is expected to be impacted. She will 
highlight the job-creating River Edge Tax Credit program that has 
recently been extended, as well as efforts to protect essential services 
like cancer screenings for at-risk women and Meals on Wheels for 
seniors. Following the update, Wallace will field questions from 
attendees. Coffee will be provided, and the forum is free to attend.

"I always look forward to engaging in a productive conversation with 
residents who choose to join these Coffee Shop Stops," Wallace said. 
"Their feedback is important to the decisions I make as a 
representative, and I continuously make an effort to share their 
thoughts when debating the critical issues that face us today."

For more information, please contact Wallace's full-time constituent 
service office at 815-987-7433, or email
