“Speaking with my constituents to hear their thoughts and perspectives on local and state issues is so valuable to me. I truly appreciate hearing folks’ thoughts directly from them,” Phelps Finnie said in a news release.

“As state representative, I want to work with the people that I represent and tackle these issues together, so that we can make Southern Illinois a better place to live and work.”

“I encourage folks from the surrounding communities to stop by my satellite office hours.  I would love to have the chance to sit down and talk with you about the issues that you’re most concerned about,” Phelps Finnie added. 

“I will continue hosting satellite office hours throughout the 11 counties that I serve, because remaining accessible to the people that I represent is very important to me.”
