(Chicago, IL) – October 13, 2011. State Rep. Kelly Cassidy (D-Chicago) this week brought academics, environmental activists, and business leaders to a forum at Loyola University to tackle environmental initiatives.

“I am committed to being an accessible representative, and this was the first of several town hall meetings I will be hosting in our community,” said Cassidy who was appointed in May to the House seat held previously by now-48th Ward Alderman Harry Osterman.

“I want to thank all of those who participated in this meeting and shared perspectives about environmental issues.”

The event featured Tom Wolf, the Executive Director of the Illinois Chamber of Commerce’s Energy Council, Barry Matchett, the Environmental Law and Policy Center, and Nancy Tuchman, a Professor of Biology at Loyola University.

Cassidy, a long-timer human rights activist, will likely face lesbian activist Paula Basta in the Democratic primary next year.
