State Sen. DeWitte resumes traveling office hours

With COVID-19 restrictions lifting across Illinois, State Sen. Donald DeWitte (R-St. Charles) is restarting traveling office hours this month, with the first event scheduled in East Dundee on Tuesday, May 25, according to a news release.

The East Dundee event will take place from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. at the Fox River Valley Public Library, 555 Barrington Ave. District office staff will be available to assist individuals and businesses with access to state services, as well as answer questions and gather opinions about legislation.

“We had to suspend these community outreach events for the last 14 months during the pandemic, and I’m pleased to be starting them back up again,” DeWitte stated in the release. “We hold these traveling office hours throughout the 33rd District so that the services my office can provide are brought into my constituents’ own communities. For those who do not live near my West Dundee office, these events provide easier access for legislative services.”

Additional traveling office hours have also been scheduled in the following Dist. 33 communities:

· June 30: Geneva, 9:30-11:30 a.m.

· July 29: Elgin, 9:30-11:30 a.m.

· Aug. 24: Algonquin, 9:30-11:30 a.m.

“These traveling office hours are open to all residents in the 33rd District, and I would encourage anyone who is having issues with state agencies to stop by and receive assistance from my talented staff,” DeWitte stated. “This includes those having issues with unemployment, FOID cards and CCL licenses, professional licensing, and other issues.”
