19th Ward Free Shredding & Electronic Recycling
9am - 11am
Located: Chicago High School for Agricultural Sciences Back Parking Lot, 3857 West 111th St.
Residents can bring unwanted papers to the parking lot to be shredded and later recycled by the R4 Services Mobile Shredding Truck. Document shredding is one of the most effective tools in preventing identity theft. Only loose, unbound papers can be shredded; all staples or binders must be removed in advance.
The Cook County Sheriff’s Office will also be on site to accept electronic materials that you would like to recycle. Please note, this service is provided free of charge, but is available only to 19th Ward residents.
This month, Governor Rauner delivered his State of the State address in Springfield. Unfortunately, his speech failed to mention the thousands of seniors, students, and victims of sexual assault who are still not receiving the services they need as a result of the ongoing budget impasse.
Though he and I may disagree, I still believe that the state should stand behind its promises to working families. Recently, I co- sponsored a bill to fully fund the Monetary Assistance Program (MAP), which gives low-income students across Illinois some assistance to pursue higher education. I believe education is critical to our young people's ability to better themselves and compete for jobs in the future, and their access to Illinois' great schools shouldn't be limited by their birthplace or their means. We were able to pass the bill out of the House and Senate, but it needs the signature of the governor to become law. He has indicated that he will veto it. I hope you'll take a few minutes to call the governor's office at 217-782-0244 and ask him to do the right thing, stand up for our students, and sign this important legislation into law. The bill number is Senate Bill 2043.
While budget negotiations continue, I'll also be working to improve our communities through other legislative initiatives. I intend to introduce legislation offering tax exemptions for the men and women who keep us safe in their service as police officers and firefighters and recently I sponsored legislation allowing a 30-day grace period for license plate renewals as a result of the Illinois Secretary of State's decision to stop mailing vehicle registration reminders.
As always, I take pride in maintaining a robust dialogue on the ways we can improve Illinois with area residents like you. If you have any thoughts about ways we can improve current law, have questions about state programs, or if I can ever be of service to you and your family, please call my full-time constituent service office at 773-445-8128 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I hope you'll take a few minutes to explore the rest of this newsletter to learn about other activities and services taking place here in our community.
