Dear Friends, Happy new year! With a new year comes a new legislative season. In 2022, one issue that my office and I are intensely concentrating on is legislation to help relieve the COVID-induced shortage of substitute teachers and school paraprofessionals. We’re doing this by working with multiple stakeholders—teachers, staff, and administrators—to help make more experienced, retired professionals eligible for subbing. It’s an idea that came from our local educators, and it’s quickly built support throughout the state. Like this substitute teacher legislation and other bills passed last year, the best legislation for our district often comes directly from our district. That’s why I invite you to take this 2022 legislative survey and help set our priorities to make sure I’m representing you and your family well. Stay safe and healthy, Janet


2022 Legislative Survey Over the next few weeks, households in the 41st district will receive our district's 2022 Legislative Survey in your mailboxes. I’d greatly appreciate your taking the time to complete the survey and help set our district’s legislative agenda for the coming year. You can send back the survey by mail or email, as instructed on the survey. You can also take the survey online.

Vaccine Clinic on January 14

Senator Laura Ellman, Naperville City Council Members Ian Holzhauer and Theresa Sullivan, and I are sponsoring a vaccine clinic this Friday at the Naperville Municipal Center. Both booster shots and pediatric doses will be available, and we hope that you’ll take advantage of this free clinic and encourage others to do so.

What: Free Vaccine Clinic for Adults and Youth

When: Friday, January 14th, 3-6 pm

Where: Naperville Municipal Center, 400 S. Eagle St., Room B, Naperville

Recap of Citizen Advisory Panels

Thank you to the many community members who participated in our Citizen Advisory Panels throughout November and December. We received good direction on areas such as making student teaching more accessible and bringing more accountability to our municipal power contracts.

The Advisory members also gave good feedback on our recently launched District Resource pages, which largely mirror the advisory panels. Please take a look at these pages, and let us know if there are other organizations we should add.

Museum Pass

Many in our community have already been able to use our district’s Museum Pass, and we want to make sure you continue to know that this resource is available to you. My family and I recently headed to Brookfield Zoo, one of more than a dozen Chicagoland museums and parks that offer complimentary visits with the pass.
