Since all in McHenry County but Algonquin Township are among those who reside in the new 14th Congressional District, I thought the followed email from Congressman Randy Hultgren might be of interest:
The Hultgren Huddle
It’s been a great month so far back in the 14th District. I’d like to thank everyone for coming out to my town hall meetings this month. We may not agree on all of the issues, but it means so much to me that you are willing to be engaged in the process and have your opinions heard on the issues most important to you.
Please remember that I am holding another town hall meeting on Monday, August 29, in the Yorkville City Council Chambers at 6:00 pm. Hope to see you there.
I’ve always said that some of my most important work is done back home in Illinois, and that’s absolutely been the case this August. While I’ve been home, I’ve had the opportunity to meet with hundreds of constituents through one-on-one meetings, speeches to different groups and organizations, and local business tours.
I was particularly proud to be joined earlier this month in Oswego by State Rep. Tom Cross, Oswego Mayor Brian LeClercq and Metra CEO Alex Clifford to announce that Metra is moving forward with the Phase 1 Engineering studies to advance a project to extend commuter rail service to Oswego.
This project will be a huge victory for a region that has seen incredible growth over the past decade by helping to ease congestion on our expressways and providing a huge economic boost to the entire area.
I’d like to thank the students at Northern Illinois University for welcoming me to campus last week. I’m truly impressed by the work of these students. They are great representatives of the area, the 14th District and the state of Illinois and I wish them the best of luck as they begin to pursue their chosen careers.
If you haven’t already, be sure to “like” my Facebook page, follow me on Twitter, or check out my YouTube page to stay informed on everything I’m doing on your behalf in Washington and in Illinois. Also, I’ve updated my Facebook page with dozens of pictures from my meetings throughout the district this month – be sure to check it out.
As always, it is truly an honor to serve you in Washington. Please contact me at 630.232.7104 or 202.225.2976 if I can be of assistance, or if you’d like to share your thoughts on the issues before Congress.
