Legislative Interviews

Legislative Interviews

Downtown Chicago shot

Every year, the LWVIL Issues Committee encourages in-district lobbying contacts, or legislative interviews, with the state senator(s) and representative(s) in each district. The primary purpose of the interview is to strengthen the line of communication and nurture relationships with lawmakers. The interviews are intended to be respectful exchanges of views and information and a step that will set the stage for future action. Interviews may be done in the legislator’s office or by phone. They may be tape-recorded, if the legislator agrees ahead of time. While LWVIL provides interview questions, additional questions that focus on local or district issues may be added. Below is the list of legislators for this year’s round of interviews. Please email the League office at league@lwvchicago.org if your legislator is on the list and you would like to interview him or her. A full packet of background information will help guide you.
