State Representative Reggie Phillips is taking his office on the road to meet with local residents in communities throughout the 110th district. On Wednesday, January 20th, the Village of Ashmore will host Representative Phillips’ traveling office hours at their village office located at 10 E. Ashmore Street.

“In a district as large and diverse as ours, traveling office hours helps me to keep in touch with constituents from each of the communities, and helps residents who may find it difficult or inconvenient to travel to my district office in Charleston,” Representative Phillips said. “I hope everyone in the Ashmore area who would like to speak with me or my staff about a problem or idea, or just wants to say hello, will stop by the Ashmore Village Office on January 20th.”

Governor Rauner Adds 11 Counties to State Disaster Proclamation for Flooding

State Continues Supporting Communities Dealing with Flood         Impacts

SPRINGFIELD – Governor Bruce Rauner today added 11 counties to the state disaster declaration for widespread flooding. Those counties include Cass, Cumberland, Iroquois, Lawrence, Marion, Menard, Moultrie, Pike, Richland, Sangamon and Vermilion. 

 Last week, Gov. Rauner declared Alexander, Calhoun, Christian, Clinton, Douglas, Jackson, Jersey, Madison, Monroe, Morgan, Randolph and St. Clair counties state disaster areas after heavy rains caused several rivers and waterways to surge to record or near-record levels.  Today’s announcement brings the total number of declared counties to 23.

“The impacts of this flood event have been felt in many communities across the state,” said Gov. Rauner. “We’re continuing to provide personnel and resources communities need as they battle flood waters and begin their recovery process.”
