Legislative Updates from Rep. Fritts

I am excited to announce my second annual summer tour! Last year, I met hundreds of residents across the district to learn more about what is needed from me as a legislator. I plan to do that again this year to make sure the voices of my constituents are heard and to bring their priorities back to Springfield.

The tour consists of traveling office hours and coffee & conversation events from June 7th to August 30th. Coffee & conversation events will all be held at locally-owned coffee shops and restaurants. I will also team up with local chambers of commerce to visit and tour a local business each week in order to better understand their state needs.

I look forward to meeting with as many of my constituents as possible this summer, all while spending time at local establishments in an effort to better learn the needs and struggles of the district.

Join us for a free shred event to safely and confidentially dispose of any unneeded documents you may have at home. This is a great opportunity for my office to give back to the community by providing an often-overlooked, but important resource. I invite all local residents to come by and utilize this free and easy service from the comfort of their cars!

Last week, I had the honor of welcoming four classes from Reagan Middle School to Springfield! I spoke with the students about my role as a legislator and how things work in the General Assembly.
