Jul 27, 2016 01:35PM ● Published by Steven Jack

State Rep. Keith Wheeler of Oswego is encouraging residents to show their support for local enforcement by giving away free blue lightbulbs for outdoor display. 

The blue light bulbs are free of charge; however donations are accepted at the time of pick-up.  Suggested donations are $2 per bulb. All proceeds will benefit Chiefs Lead the Way, a mental health and wellness initiative of the Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police. 

The bulbs may be picked up Wheeler's district office at 959 Oak St. in North Aurora. Regular office hours are 9 am – 5 pm Monday-Thursday and 9 am – 4 pm on Fridays, or by appointment.

“The men and women of our local law enforcement agencies deserve to know the support they have within the community,” Wheeler said. “Blue light bulbs are just one small but impactful way we can show respect to those who put their lives on the line each and every day to serve and protect us.”

Wheeler represents the 50th District, which includes portions of Aurora, Batavia, Geneva, Campton Hills, Elburn, Montgomery, Oswego, Plano, St. Charles, Sugar Grove and Yorkville.
