Kifowit invites residents to discussion on recent state news

State Rep. Stephanie Kifowit, D-Oswego, will meet with local residents to discuss the latest on the state budget, education funding and other major issues facing the state at a “What Is Really Happening In Springfield?” discussion on Saturday, Aug. 12 from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. at Waubonsie Valley High School, located at 2590 Ogden Avenue in Aurora.

“Special interest groups have been spreading misinformation about property taxes, the bipartisan budget compromise and the education funding reform bill I supported,” Kifowit said. “Our event will provide residents with the real facts on how the new funding formula improves our education system, how property taxes are calculated and how passing a responsible and balanced budget saved the state of Illinois from junk bond status and protected the programs our most vulnerable residents rely on. I encourage those who are concerned about the budget, property taxes and education funding reform to attend this event.”

Kifowit will be joined by state Sen. Linda Holmes, D-Aurora, Naperville Township Assessor Warren Dixon III, Ralph Martire from the Center for Tax and Budget Accountability, and representatives from the education reform group Advance Illinois. Topics to be discussed include the recently passed bipartisan, compromise budget, property taxes and education funding reform. Check-in starts at 8:15 a.m. and each panel will lead their individual discussions every hour beginning at 8:30 until 11:30 to give residents the opportunity to hear all discussions.
