The event is scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 24 at 6:30 p.m. at the Heritage Park Center, located at 100 Community Boulevard in Wheeling.

“Business development and regional job creation is important, but also requires a keen eye towards environmental protection,” Morrison said. “Lake and Cook County residents deserve to have all the information available and should know that the environmental impact of the Foxconn development won’t end at the Wisconsin border.”

SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Julie Morrison (D-Deerfield) expressed her frustration at the Rauner administration’s failure to keep the U.S. headquarters for Takeda Pharmaceuticals in Deerfield:

“This is a devastating blow to our community. I’m disappointed in the move. I’m even more disappointed that the Rauner administration did nothing to prevent these job losses. This is another example of the governor’s inability to run this state and focus on what matters.

“Takeda is leaving behind hundreds of talented workers that are an asset to the Illinois research industry. The governor has the opportunity to help pick up these pieces and move Illinois forward.”
