PROSPECT — State Sen. Joe Markley (R-16) joined legislators throughout the 16th Senatorial District in June to host open discussions concerning legislative business with constituents.

Markley joined state Rep. Lezlye Zupkus (R-89) for a forum in Prospect June 10.
“It is very important for me to make sure the people in my district are aware of what happens during the legislative session at the state Capitol,” Markley said in a press release. “So many bills are proposed and so many issues discussed that it can be difficult to grasp the results.”

The town halls focused on an overview of the 2014 legislative session and addressed concerns raised by attendees. Discussions covered topics ranging from healthcare to the Common Core curriculum to budget issues and taxes.

“Overwhelmingly, attendees agree that we must reduce the size, scope and cost of state government,” Markley said in a press release. “That has been my priority as a legislator, and I am gratified by the support expressed at these meetings for our positions and our efforts.”
