Working with Congressional Black Caucus drafting legislation to prevent tragedies like George Floyd
Since the alleged murder of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police last Monday, 5/25, Congresswoman Lauren Underwood has been completely silent about Floyd, and the protests and violence which has gripped the United States over the past week.
Former rivals Matt Quigley (R, Aurora) and Catalina Lauf (R, Woodstock) among other 14th district residents, have been voicing their concerns of Underwood’s silence in recent days on Twitter.
Quigley, in particular cited shots being fired in his Aurora neighborhood within the 14th district, and questioned why Underwood has not been addressing the violence.
Today around 12:43PM CDT, Congresswoman Lauren Underwood posted a just over 4 minute video on Twitter. Her congressional office did not release a formal statement, so the Twitter video is her only official response, which was posted on her congressional office’s Twitter ID:
Since McHenry County is the largest county within the 14th district, look forward to hearing comments from McHenry County Blog readers.
Please keep comments solely on the contents of Underwood’s tweet and video.
