The topic of the Town Hall centers on Jackson’s vision of progress, improvement, and revitalization for the 1st District.

Santita Jackson will serve as moderator of a panel of journalists who will pose questions to Jackson about issues affecting the residents of the 1st congressional district. The journalists include Erick Johnson of the Chicago Crusader, Hermene Hartman, Publisher of N’digo, Lady Red from 106.3, and Sonya Tompkins of WVON radio.

“I am eager to share the points of my platform for the 1st District with the residents,” Jackson said. “I am very interested to hear from the people and engage in meaningful dialogue about how we can work together for the benefit of the region once I am in Congress.”

The next day, Jackson will participate with other candidates in the Illinois 123GO – Democratic Party Town Hall on Tuesday, June 14, 6:00 – 8:30 p.m., at Bethany Union Church, 1750 W. 103rd St. This forum features a “Coffee with the Candidates” segment from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m., followed by the Town Hall Meeting from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m.
