Rep. Harris made remarks on the House floor this past week in which he disparaged all the negative talk about Illinois and touted the many positive advantages that our State has to offer as it pursues the location for Amazon's second headquarters (HQ2). 

Various units of Illinois government have offered a package of benefits and tax credits totaling nearly $2 billion, which is in line with what other states have offered Amazon. But just as important as the financial package, the work ethic and quality of the Illinois workforce, the location of our State, and the talented and educated citizenry are all major pluses for Amazon to consider. It's time to emphasize the positive!
State Representative David Harris (R-Arlington Heights) announced that he is hosting his Annual Senior Health Fair again this year from 9:00 a.m. to noon on Thursday, October 19th at the Mount Prospect Village Hall. This will be the 5th year that Rep. Harris has hosted the health fair at this location. It is open to all who want to attend.

“The Annual Health Fair is a community event that has grown in attendance and exhibitors over the years,” said Harris, “and I am delighted that we have an even larger commitment of exhibitors this year than in the past.”

The Health Fair provides important medical services like Flu Shots (free with Medicare), Pneumonia Vaccinations, Blood Pressure Screening, A1C Screening, and Hearing Screening. There is also a Heart Health Booth.
