Coffee with Connelly

This morning Illinois State Senator Michael Connelly hosted “Coffee and a Conversation” at Colonial Café. Over a dozen residents stopped by the casual forum to ask questions and chat with the senator about topics important to them. “They want the ability to basically to see what you’re about,” said Connelly. “Maybe talk to you about issue that aren’t really front and center in the tribune but something that’s very near and dear to them.” Fellow State Senator John F.
