News for the 33rd District | May 2015

Marcus C. Evans, Jr.
State Representative | 33rd District
May 2015
Evans in Action

Dear Friend,
As we enter the month of May, this first session of the 99th General Assembly is winding down. We are all diligently working through bills and many of the critical issues will be voted on soon. As your representative I am not only voting on these measures, but I am personally working to push bills.
When I first entered the House of Representatives one of my top goals was to do something to help the pension security of all of the phenomenal retired teachers of Chicago. One of my bills this year, HB3695, takes steps to accomplish that goal. This legislation, which I have pushed since my firset day in office, creates a more secure and dedicated funding stream for the pensions of the retired teachers of Chicago. I call it the "minimum payment bill" and the bill passed out of the house last month. This is just one of many other issues that I am passionately pushing in Springfield.

In the community I am always accessible and I am always looking for ways to better serve our district in a collaborative way. Therefore, if you would like to share your ideas or opinions, always feel free to visit my office or website.

Please know that I will continue to push and advocate for you, our community and try to make a difference in Springfield. Keep me in your thoughts and prayer, and I will keep you in mine!! Thank you for allowing me to serve you.
All the Best,

Marcus C. Evans, Jr.
