State Rep. Robyn Gabel, D-Evanston, is inviting area residents to join her and State Rep. Laura Fine, D-Glenview, for an informal discussion about state and local issues at a coffee and conversation event between 10 and 11 a.m. on Feb. 24 at the Wilmette Public Library.

“Our Coffee and Conversation is a great opportunity to stay in touch with local residents’ concerns and share important discussions over a cup of coffee,” Gabel said. “These meetings allow me to hear directly from constituents and help me to be a better advocate for their interests in our State Capitol. I encourage residents to stop by to discuss ideas and share their concerns.”

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, please contact Gabel’s constituent service office at 847-424-9898 or
