One of the candidates for governor will visit the Ottawa area next Thursday to put on a statewide town hall meeting. Ameya Pawar will put on the event at the Skydive Chicago airport at 7:30pm on June 15.
He says Ottawa is rich in history and is an integral part of Illinois. He also says it’s symbolic of how people are all connected and are concerned about the same things from school funding to living wages to a fair chance at prosperity.
Pawar is one of several Democrats running for governor heading toward the 2018 primaries.
