ROCK FALLS – Weeks after the end of his first legislative session, Rep. Mike Smiddy, D-Hillsdale, is planning two town hall meetings in Whiteside County.

The events are from 6 to 7 p.m. today in the meeting room at the Rock Falls Public Library, 1007 Seventh Ave.,and from 6 to 7 p.m. Thursday in the basement at the Henry C. Adams Library in Prophetstown.

Smiddy, who was elected in November, plans to update residents on state issues and hear local views in the 71st District, according to a news release.

“I wanted to serve as the voice for hardworking families because I knew state government was dysfunctional, and we have to work together to change that and get the important decisions made,” Smiddy said in the release.

“When taxpayers were asked for more money to cover the cost of a special legislative session, I rejected the daily allowance and mileage payments because we have to start making good financial decisions.”

Smiddy represents all of Whiteside County.
