Rep. Wehrli to Host ‘Addressing Corruption’ Town Hall on Jan. 23

As Illinois continues to be plagued by ever worsening allegations of public corruption, State Representative Grant Wehrli (R-Naperville) is inviting residents to join him for a discussion about Illinois’ ethics laws and solutions to address public corruption in the state. The “Addressing Corruption” Town Hall will be held in the council chambers at Naperville City Hall on January 22, 2020 from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.

“I have been working to root out the longstanding corruption and bring accountability to state government since I first took office,” said Wehrli. “Even though the powers that be in the General Assembly ignored the simple, common sense and bipartisan legislative solutions we offered this fall, the latest corruption allegations only provide more evidence that action needs to be taken. Please join me for this discussion of corruption and what we can do to get past the unacceptable logjam preventing ethical government in Illinois.”

During the town hall meeting, Wehrli will provide an update on legislative solutions already proposed in the General Assembly, but rejected by majority party Democrats during the fall Veto Session. He will also provide an update on the Joint Commission on Ethics and Lobbying Reform. Residents are invited to express concerns, provide feedback and offer additional solutions to help curb the pervasive impact of corruption in Illinois government.
