After receiving notice late Tuesday night regarding a policy change at Sauk Valley Community College that would require guests to show proof of vaccine or present a negative COVID-19 test, State Senator Brian Stewart (R-Freeport) has announced he will reschedule his Thurday, September 23rd in-person Dixon Regional Town Hall.
Sen. Stewart’s rescheduled Regional Listening Tour Town Hall will now take place on Tuesday, November 16th from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Dixon Elks Lodge 779, 1279 Franklin Grove Road, Dixon, IL 61021. The event was originally scheduled to take place on Thursday, September 23 in the Jerry Mathis Theatre at Sauk Valley Community College.
“The vaccine-or-test requirement at the venue for its guests has the potential to severely limit who is able to attend my event,” said Sen. Stewart. “I want to ensure that every constituent has the ability to have their voice heard and address the concerns that matter most to them, which is why I have decided to reschedule the event at a venue that would accommodate all constituents.
“My staff has worked hard to ensure this event protects the health and safety of all attendees and they will continue to do so for the rescheduled event.”
The rescheduled event will still feature special guests, State Senators Sue Rezin (Morris), Dave Syverson (Rockford), and Win Stoller (Germantown Hills).
