Imagine being a legislator who is so secure that he has blown off any real town hall meetings with his constituents for years. The face that comes to mind should be Illinois Senate President and Ravenswood Manor resident John Cullerton.
But fear not, Cullerton will be making a Chicago appearance this weekend when he attends the Justice for All Gala on Saturday.
See, he does show his face in the city, not just to Downstate editorial boards.
Our local senator plans to attend with such big wigs as Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan.
Chicago Go Pride says 1,000 guests are expected to celebrate Equality Illinois.
Imagine if Cullerton met 1,000 people from his district.
