Foster to host meetings on budget deficit

Residents of the 11th Congressional District are invited to gatherings Monday in Joliet and Naperville to share their thoughts on reducing the federal budget deficit.

U.S. Rep. Bill Foster, D-Naperville, will host an interactive budget exercise in conjunction with the nonpartisan Concord Coalition, according to a news release from Foster’s office.

Residents working in groups of five to 10 will have the opportunity to suggest policies to reduce the deficit and improve the long-term fiscal outlook for the country, the release said.

“As we work to find long-term budget solutions in Congress, I look forward to having a dialogue about our priorities for our community and our country,” Foster said in the release.

The events are scheduled for 9 to 11 a.m. in the Health Professions Center auditorium at Joliet Junior College, 1215 Houbolt Road, Joliet; and from 1 to 3 p.m. at Calvary Church, 9S200 Route 59, Naperville.

The events are free, but space is limited, the release said. To RSVP, call Foster’s district office in Joliet at 815-280-5876 or in Aurora at 630-585-7672.
