VERNON HILLS – In an effort to meet Lake County residents where they are and offer her assistance, State Senator Adriane Johnson (D-Buffalo Grove) will host mobile office hours this month at the Vernon Hills Farmers Market.

Farmers MarketJohnson will have a table at the farmers market on Thursday, Aug. 12 and Thursday, Aug. 19 from 4 to 7 p.m. each evening. The market—organized by the Vernon Hills Park District—is open rain or shine at the south end of Century Park in Vernon Hills, located at the corner of Lakeview Parkway and Hawthorn Parkway.

“The farmers market is a great place to buy fresh, local produce, meats, baked goods and more—and to talk with your neighbors about what’s going on in the community,” Johnson said. “It’s the perfect convenient location to host my August mobile office hours.”

Residents are invited to talk with Johnson or a member of her staff at the market for help with unemployment cases and state services, or simply to discuss issues facing the community.

Johnson regularly hosts mobile office hours to reach residents in all corners of the 30th District. Future dates, times and locations will be announced on Johnson’s Facebook and Twitter pages, as well as on her website,
