ALTON – State Rep. Monica Bristow, D-Godfrey, is encouraging area residents to attend her first coffee stop shop beginning at 3 p.m. Jan. 25 at Germania BrewHaus, located at 617 E. Broadway in Alton.
“Listening to the ideas and concerns of local residents and families will help me better understand what I need to do to help our community grow and prosper,” Bristow said. “As a new legislator, it is important I reach out to my residents so I can hit the ground running with the start of a new legislative session.”
Bristow was formerly president of the RiverBend Growth Association and recently replaced now retired state Rep. Dan Beiser to represent the 111th state house district. In an effort to help with the transition, Bristow will be hosting multiple coffee stop shops throughout the region to meet with residents. They are free and open to the public.
“RiverBend was home to me for many years, and I am looking forward to giving the same quality and care that I did as president to my community in my new role,” said Bristow. “I welcome residents to take the time to participate in one of my coffee stops so I can help effectively represent their concerns and opinions in Springfield.”
