State Representative candidate Liz Bishop opens campaign headquarters in Ottawa – Shaw Local

The Friends of Liz Bishop campaign committee announced that the grand opening of its new campaign headquarters in Ottawa is scheduled for Thursday, May 9, from 5:30 to 7 p.m.

The new office is located at 729 La Salle St., Ottawa, and will serve as a hub for Bishop's campaign activities leading up to the November election.

State Rep. Lance Yednock, D-Ottawa, has decided not to seek re-election, leaving the seat open for the upcoming November election. Bishop faces Amy “Murri” Briel, a Democrat from Ottawa, in the contest that covers La Salle, DeKalb and Bureau counties.

The grand opening will provide community members the opportunity to meet Bishop in person and learn more about her platform, including improving access to health care, reducing the cost of living, improving crime reduction efforts and ensuring fair governance, Bishop said in a press release.

“We are pleased to open our doors and invite residents of Ottawa and surrounding communities in the 76th District to join us in celebrating the progress of our campaign and our plans for the future,” Bishop said in the release. “This campaign office will be more than just a workplace; It will be a community center where individuals can come together, exchange ideas and take an active role in improving our district.”

Refreshments will be served and attendees will have the opportunity to discuss their thoughts and concerns directly with Bishop and gain insights that will help shape the focus of their campaign, she said in the release. The event is public.
