Coffee with Sam!
Date:06/09/2018Time:10:00 am - 11:00 am
Location: Somethings Brewing : 1126 E. Washington St., Grayslake
State Rep. Sam Yingling, D-Grayslake, is kicking off his summer outreach program by announcing his “Iced Coffee and Conversation” constituent meet-up event on Saturday, June 9 from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Somethings Brewing located at 1126 E. Washington St. in downtown Grayslake.

“I like to host coffee town hall events because they provide great opportunities to get more face time with my community, support local businesses, and really connect with the people I serve in a comfortable, relaxed setting,” Yingling said “My coffee gatherings provide the people I represent with a chance to express their concerns and involved with state policy matters. Offering weekend constituent events is important for people who have work or family obligations that prevent them from attending weeknight events in the community."

Attendees will receive a complimentary cup of iced coffee and have a chance to speak with Yingling about state and local issues. Yingling regularly hosts “Coffee with Sam” events at local coffee shops, restaurants and diners to give local residents an opportunity to meet with him in a casual, informal setting. The event is free and open to the public. RSVPs are appreciated but not required, and to RSVP please contact his office at 847-231-6262 or

“When the legislature adjourns for the summer, I'll be in my district hosting community events and going door-to-door to hear firsthand what my constituents are concerned about,” Yingling said. “I look forward to hosting events like this throughout the weeks ahead and encourage residents to join me.”

Satellite Office Hours
Location: Wauconda Village Hall
Rep. Yingling to Host June Satellite Office Hours in Wauconda

ROUND LAKE BEACH, Ill. – In order to be more accessible to all residents of the 62nd District, state Rep. Sam Yingling, D-Round Lake Beach, is holding Satellite Office Hours on Monday, June 11 from 10 a.m. until noon at the Wauconda Village Hall located at 101 N. Main St.

“The 62nd District covers a large area of central Lake County, and not all the residents of my district can conveniently visit my full-time office in Round Lake Beach,” Yingling said, “I try to bring my office to residents by hosting satellite office hour in the various towns of the district. This month we will be revisiting Wauconda by hosting satellite office hours.”

Residents are invited to receive an update on the legislative session, to voice their concerns regarding any state issues or to receive assistance navigating state government.

“I look forward to updating residents on the work I’ve been doing in Springfield to balance our budget, consolidate government and provide tax relief for the middle-class,” Yingling said. “The input that I receive from residents at these meetings helps me represent our community to the best of my ability.”

Annual Environmental Issues Forum
Living here in Lake County, we are often reminded of the importance of preserving natural spaces and our environment for future generations. As a member of the Legislative Green Caucus, I work with the state’s leading environmental organizations to advance clean energy policies, strengthen our environmental standards, and advocate for progressive policies to protect the quality of our air and water.

While the protection of our environment is under attack at the federal level, there is much that we can do here in Lake County and in Illinois to stop climate changes and save our natural resources. Please join us to learn more about some of these initiatives, and to share your own thoughts and ideas about ways we can address local environmental concerns. I hope you will attend and share your thoughts on these important issues

6 P.M. TO 7 P.M.

Annual Document Shredding, Drug Take Back
Location: Grayslake North High School

ROUND LAKE BEACH, Ill. - Back by popular demand, state Rep. Sam Yingling, D-Grayslake, is excited to announce that he is partnering with the Grayslake-Hainesville Police Department to host his annual document shredding and prescription drug turn in event on Saturday, June 23 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Grayslake North High School, located at 1925 N. Illinois 83 in Grayslake.

“Hosting free events like my community shred day is one of the many ways that my office can provide services to local residents,” Yingling said. “I hope that residents will utilize this opportunity to turn in any unused or expired prescription drugs for safe disposal, and protect themselves from the serious crime of identity theft by shredding documents that contain sensitive information.”

The free event gives residents the opportunity to safely dispose of any documents that contain personal information, or any unwanted prescription drugs. Many residents unknowingly throw away documents that contain personal information such as bank statements, medical documents, credit card statements or old bills. Shredding these documents ensures that the personal information is destroyed. Residents must remove all staples and paperclips before arriving, and each car is limited to two bags or small boxes. The event will run until 1 p.m. or until the shredding truck reaches capacity. Participants will not be able to dispose of bags or boxes.

“This event is one of the many ways in which I work with a wide array of community partners and local organizations to better serve our area,” Yingling said. “The Grayslake-Hainesville Police Department and other local law enforcement groups, provide invaluable services to our area, and I am grateful to have them on hand to assist in safely removing old, unwanted medicine and documents.”

Yingling represents the 62nd District, which includes portions of Gages Lake, Grayslake, Hainesville, Ingleside the Round Lake Communities, Wauconda, and Wildwood. For more information please contact Rep. Yingling’s full time constituent office at (847) 231-6262 or
