SPRINGFIELD, IL – On the latest leg of the 51st Legislative District “Transition Tour,” State Sen. Chapin Rose (R-Mahomet) stopped in Paris and Chrisman to meet with local officials on Jan 30.
“I had a great day in Edgar County. Whether it was touring Paris schools, visiting with locally elected officials, or touring the hospital, I really appreciate these community leaders for taking the time to show me around and let me know about local priorities,” Rose said. “Economic development and job creation is sorely needed in downstate Illinois. As part of my on-going tour of the new 51st district, it is my goal to meet with locally elected leaders, chamber of commerce and economic development directors, and other community leaders to see where the state can help in attracting and retaining downstate jobs.”
In this stop, Sen. Rose met with several local Paris, Chrisman, and Edgar County officials. The Senator stressed that his “Transition Tour” will be continuing throughout the spring legislative session. He has now toured all four Edgar County school districts in the 51st district.
