BUFFALO GROVE To ensure the voices of every generation are heard, State Senator Adriane Johnson is introducing a Youth Advisory Board and a Senior Advisory Board, which will be accepting applications through March 10.

“The purpose of these boards is to amplify the voices of people throughout the 30th District,” said Johnson (D-Buffalo Grove). “My hope is that these groups will allow people to feel empowered to speak up, brainstorm solutions and ultimately build a better community.”

Members of each of Johnson’s advisory boards will meet monthly to discuss community issues that are important to them and how she can use her position as a senator to better serve both older and younger generations. The boards will be made up of seniors over the age of 55, and students from local high schools and colleges.

People interested in getting involved in state government and having their voice heard should apply for a position no later than March 10. This class of members will hold their positions until March 2025.

“Advisory boards are a great opportunity to have your voice heard and impact legislation,” said Johnson. “The best legislation is often inspired by intentional conversations within the community.”
