Parkhurst invites community to visit Kankakee office
Rep. Lindsay Parkhurst (R-Kankakee) invited her constituents to visit her district office in Kankakee to familiarize themselves with the office and staff members.
“It’s important members of the community know my office is open and accessible,” Parkhurst sad. “While most of my job is spent in Springfield, constituents need to know where my office is and what kind of in-district services we can offer.”
Parkhurt's office is located at 370 E. Court Street. She said that while she was there to hear from constituents, the event was also an opportunity for local community members to understand that they can approach her staff at any time. Parkhurst noted in a press release that the office is open for any state-related questions or concerns, and that anyone with questions related to state agencies can get more information there.
“I lived in this community my whole life, but I am new to the role of state representative,” Parkhurst said. “This is a chance for people to get to know me as their go-to state contact. I want to make sure constituents can talk to me or my office and know they have been heard.”
