Area Chambers Join Together to Celebrate State Representative’s New District Office

New Lenox, IL (April 17, 2015) — On Monday, April 13, 2015 the New Lenox Chamber of Commerce partnered with the chambers of Frankfort and Mokena to celebrate State Representative Margo McDermed’s new district office with a ribbon cutting and business after hours.

Conveniently located at 1032 W. Lincoln Highway in Frankfort, Representative McDermed’s office is perfectly situated to help serve the residents of the 37th District. “This office will serve as Margo’s home office outside of Springfield. We are really happy to be here, serving our constituents,” said Kathy Hilton, 37th District Legislative Assistant.

Approximately 100 people came out to celebrate, including local business leaders, numerous local officials, including Mayor Tim Baldermann and Trustees Dye, Johnson and Smith of New Lenox, and the Chamber presidents and board members from New Lenox, Frankfort and Mokena. A networking reception followed.

New Lenox Chamber President Lisa Kline (Suburban Bank and Trust) presented Representative McDermed with a ribbon cutting certificate. Mayor Baldermann also expressed gratitude for her continued hard work on behalf of the county and congratulated her on her new role and office space.

Constituents of the 37th District are invited to attend a District Office Open House on Saturday, April 25th, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Constituents are invited to come see the new office and learn more about Representative McDermed.
