Rep. Chyung to Host Town Halls on Road Projects, Legislative Update

Democratic State Representative Chris Chyung of Dyer will be hosting a series of town halls throughout the 15th House District in Lake County this month. Representative Chyung says some of them will provide overviews on the past session of the Indiana General Assembly while others will focus on upcoming road and bridge projects.

“There are two purposes behind these meetings,” Chyung said. “On June 13 in St. John and June 17 in Schererville, I will be joined by Matt Deitchley, communications director for the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) in Northwest Indiana, who will review the road and bridge projects that are planned for our area during this year’s construction season. This will give residents a chance to see what kind of improvements are on tap, and give them an idea of potential closures that might be coming through the rest of this summer.

“On four other dates – June 15 and 24 in Griffith, June 22 in St. John, and June 27 in Schererville – I will be providing a review of the work that was done during the 2019 session of the Indiana General Assembly, gauging the public’s impressions of the major issues we are facing in state government, and gaining their input on the agenda I intend to pursue during the 2020 legislative session,” he added.

Here is the full schedule of Chyung’s town halls in June 2019:
