The Paul Simon Institute for Public Policy and Senator Tammy Duckworth held a town hall event at SIU on Friday evening. 

The Senator took questions from constituents on a large variety of issues. She repeatedly stressed the importance of bipartisanship when the country is so divided. 

"I have made it my personal guiding principle to be as bipartisan as possible," she said.

Residents of the Illinois 58th district will get the chance to make their voices heard. 

Senator Paul Schimpf is inviting the public to a town hall meeting in Carbondale on Saturday. 

As the summer campaign season heats up for the November elections, the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute released town hall meeting guidelines in effort to encourage open and vigorous dialogue between the public and policy makers.
