Farwell reception for state Rep. Constance Howard...

Looks like the 34th State Representative seat is up for grabs. This event is for Rep. Howard, but it makes you wonder who's interested in this state legislative seat. Anyone want to fill us in?

Also if you go to this event feel free to let us know what happened. Hopefully there will be pictures as well!

A farewell reception is being held for Rep. Constance “Connie” Howard (D-34th) 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday, September 25, 2011, at Hardtime Josephine’s Cooking Restaurant, 436 E. 79th Street, Chicago, Il.

In office for 17-years, Rep. Howard has gained national recognition for her work on ex-offender issues and other initiatives such as HIV/AIDS in the African American community and bridging the digital divide in minority’s communities.

Rep. Howard continues to fight for reform and causes that ultimately saves the state of Illinois millions of dollars through her innovative legislative initiatives especially in the realm of her ex-offender work aimed at turning tax burdens into tax payers.
