State Representative Steve Reick (R-Woodstock) is continuing his mobile office hours tour next week with an event planned for Monday, November 19 at the McHenry Public Library.

From 10:00 AM until noon on Monday, residents from the 63rd Legislative House District are invited to meet with Reick at the library, located at 809 Front Street in McHenry. “I enjoy these outreach events because they provide me with an excellent opportunity to connect with the people I represent in Springfield,” said Reick. “By talking with constituents and learning about the state issues that are important to them, I am able to bring their priorities to Springfield by serving as their voice.”

No appointment is needed, and in addition to Reick staffing the event, a member of his staff will be available to assist constituents with state issues. “I look forward to talking one-on-one with people as I bring my office to them in their own community,” said Reick.

Future mobile office hours dates and locations will be posted on Reick’s web site at www.repstevenreick.com.
State Representative Steve Reick (R-Woodstock) earned high praise on Monday from the Illinois Technology & Manufacturing Association (TMA) for his support of manufacturing in Illinois. Reick’s recognition was based on votes he took in 2018 that affect the manufacturing industry and the overall Illinois economy.

“The outmigration of manufacturing jobs in Illinois is having a negative impact on the state’s economy and employment numbers,” said Reick. “As lawmakers we have a responsibility to ease the regulations that are driving these job creators out of the state.”

This year legislators were scored on their votes on 10 pieces of legislation that affected the manufacturing sector, and those earning a score of 70 or higher were recognized. Only 39 members of the House of Representatives earned recognition this year.

TMA President Steven Rauschenberger applauded Reick for being a champion for the manufacturing industry and said, “The Technology & Manufacturing Association appreciates Representative Reick's open mind and open door to issues that affect jobs and employment opportunity in his district. His even handed approach helps make Illinois better."

The Technology and Manufacturing Association assists Illinois’ $100 billion manufacturing sector through advice, education, and other programs and also advocates for legislation to help the industry succeed in Illinois. Close to 20,000 manufacturing firms provide over half a million jobs statewide in Illinois.
