CTPF and Representative Robinson Host Meet and Greet for District 5 Constituents


Saturday, August 10, 2019, Following the festivities of the 90th Annual Bud Billiken Back to School Parade, CTPF members continued the celebration and shared some community spirit with a Meet and Greet with Illinois State Rep. Lamont J. Robinson, Jr. 

CTPF Members from Representative Robinson’s 5th District along with CTPF’s elected Trustees and staff enjoyed the opportunity to get to know Representative Robinson, his chief volunteer (and mom) Mary Robinson a retired CPS teacher, and enjoyed a special visit from Alderman Walter Burnett (27th Ward) and his wife Darlena Williams-Burnett. The Alderman’s ward covers a part of Rep. Robinson’s 5th District. Nearly 1,700 CTPF members live in the 5th District.

Rep. Robinson, Alderman Burnett, and Charles A. Burbridge, Executive Director all greeted guests who enjoyed the opportunity to share their thoughts. CTPF shared materials about the Fund, including The Buck Stay’s Here, the Fund’s economic impact statement. 

Thank you to Representative Robinson for hosting the event, and to Alderman Burnett for sharing his time. We appreciate the opportunity for our elected officials to meet with our constituents to better understand the continued impact our members have on their communities, the City of Chicago, and the State of Illinois.
