To facilitate an open, ongoing dialogue with the people of the 48th District, Manar has committed to regularly visiting towns across the district to meet with constituents and answer their questions as part of a program he’s calling “Capitol on your Corner.”
“The people of the 48th district want an independent voice in Springfield, and I feel the best way to do that is to be accessible and directly accountable to residents,” Manar said. “People shouldn’t have to travel to Springfield to talk to their representatives face-to-face, so I’m coming to them.”
The second “Capitol on your Corner” event is scheduled as follows:
• 11:30am – 12:30pm on March 23 at Jalyrih’s Grill in Decatur, IL
• Jalyrih’s Grill – 820 N. Main St.
Manar welcomed over 40 people at his first “Capitol on Your Corner” event at the Yellow Dog restaurant in Worden earlier this month.
