WASHINGTON DC – During this week’s Congressional District Work Period, U.S. Representative Randy Hultgren (IL-14) traveled across McHenry and Lake Counties, meeting with constituents and students, and discussing economic issues with local manufacturers.
“I look forward to every District Work Period when I get to celebrate the accomplishments of our great citizens and work with communities to solve pressing problems,” said Rep. Hultgren. “From meeting with homeschooling students in McHenry to getting an up close look at important Illinois manufacturers that provide thousands of jobs to our workers, I am honored to be able to share with them about what I am doing to represent them in Washington and help them solve local challenges. I am always happy to meet with residents to talk about their concerns, opinions and ideas about how to grow our economy and improve the quality of life in the 14th District.”
On Wednesday, Rep. Hultgren talked about U.S. government and the importance of getting a STEM-focused education with students from across northern Illinois, including Crystal Lake, Huntley, Algonquin, Johnsburg, Spring Grove, Woodstock and Harvard, at an assembly sponsored by MCCSG.org, a charity that provides enrichment and educational programs for homeschoolers.
Later he toured Petroferm, a Gurnee manufacturer and marketer of specialty cleaning agents to meet the demands of high reliability manufacturing operations including electronics assembly and semiconductor packaging applications. Petroferm is a member of IPC — Association Connecting Electronics Industries, a global industry association representing all facets of the electronics industry which, among other things, pushes for removing regulatory burdens that hinder Americans competitiveness and innovation, and get in the way of hiring workers and expanding businesses.
On Thursday, Rep. Hultgren delivered a Washington update to the Rotary Club of Antioch in Lake County, sharing information about key legislative and regulatory issues and mapping out legislative activity for May.
