News for the 33rd District | Happy Independence Day | July 2015

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

Dear Friend,
As summer gets into full swing, the first session of the 99th General Assembly continues into July. We are still working through the state budget to balance fiscal responsibility with compassionate service delivery.
It is my belief that as we move forward we must carefully examine cuts to fully understand the potentially devastating consequences. Personally, I am particularly dedicated to working to protect many of the human services programs and line items that assist our most vulnerable citizens.

As always, I stay dedicated to continuing to serve you, our 33rd District and the entire state of Illinois. Have a safe and joyous Independence Day Holiday weekend.

All the best,

Marcus C. Evans, Jr.
