VILLA PARK — State Rep. Deb Conroy, D-Elmhurst, is looking for local veterans to participate in her newly-formed Veterans' Issues Advisory Committee.

The committee will be an opportunity for veterans and veteran advocates to give Conroy feedback about their unique issues and concerns.

"Ensuring that veterans have access to and are informed of the benefits that they deserve is essential," Conroy said. "These are individuals who have dedicated their lives to serving our country, sometimes dangerously, and it is our duty as public servants to provide the services they need when they return home."

Anyone interested in participating in the committee's discussion is welcome to attend the meeting at 6 p.m. April 4 at Conroy's constituent services office, 28 S. Villa Ave., in Villa Park.
