State Rep. Carol Sente (D-Vernon Hills) was sworn into her new term Wednesday, and will be back in town to meet with constituents this weekend in Buffalo Grove.
“I am deeply honored by the opportunity to continue to represent our area in the upcoming General Assembly. I am humbled by the support I have received for my efforts to reduce government spending, increase government transparency, improve public safety, and grow businesses of all sizes to get Illinoisans back to work,” Sente said in a statement. “The General Assembly will face many challenges in the upcoming legislative session, and I look forward to working in a bipartisan manner to make Illinois more business-friendly, allowing our economy to prosper and hopefully address future budget shortages.”
“This session, I plan to continue my record of fiscal responsibility by opposing tax increases and trimming wasteful government spending,” she added. “Finding innovative ways to grow our state’s economy and attract new businesses and jobs to our neighborhoods will continue to be a top priority. While managing to live within the state’s means, I will also champion improving education opportunities for our children and young adults, who will soon be competing for jobs on a global market. As discussions develop on these important issues, I welcome the feedback and ideas of local residents and will continue to hold regular public meetings and citizen-led advisory committees throughout the year.”
Citizens are invited to meet with Sente from 9-10 a.m. Jan. 12 at Starbucks, 1665 N. Buffalo Grove Road, to share input on state issues.
