Taste of UIS presents Hasara’s reflections on public service

April 13, 2004

SPRINGFIELD - The University of Illinois Alumni Association at UIS will present “Public Policy, Cow Chips, and Chicken Dinners: Reflections on 28 Years of Public Service,” the third program in this spring’s Taste of UIS: Distinguished Faculty/Alumni Lunchtime Lecture Series, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, April 28, at Maldaner’s Upstairs, 222 South Sixth St., Springfield. Reservations are required and should be made no later than Friday, April 23.

Former mayor of Springfield Karen Hasara, a UIS distinguished alumna and holder of other elected offices, will be the featured speaker. During nearly three decades of public service, Hasara served in all three branches of government. She will reflect on how she became involved in politics in 1975 and how she balanced family life with politics at a time when few women were seeking elected office.  She will also share her perspectives on the changes in campaigning and holding public office, as well as her personal views of Illinois and Springfield politics. 

Cost for the program is $18 per person, $13 for Alumni Association members and their guests. To make reservations call Alumni Relations at (217) 206-7395, register on-line at www.uiaa.org/spfld, or e-mail alumni@uis.edu.
