LANSING, Ill. (July 13, 2019) – State Representative Marcus Evans has chosen Lansing’s Fox Pointe as the venue for his Town Hall meeting, Thursday, July 18, beginning at 6:00pm.

The Governor’s Office will also do a presentation on the Fair Tax Plan, and there will be a question-and-answer session to address any state concerns.
Other topics of discussion include:
- Legalizing cannabis
