Last week I was home for a district work period. The week started with a number of Memorial Day events in Glencoe, Grayslake, and Mundelein. It was a source of pride to see all our local communities commemorate and honor the memories of those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation and the freedoms we all enjoy.
On Friday, our hearts again broke watching news of yet another deadly school shooting – this time in Santa Fe, Texas.
First and most importantly, to the mothers and grandmothers reading today, I hope you had a wonderful and relaxing Mother’s Day weekend!
Last week the House was not in session, so I was able to be home and travel throughout the district. It was Small Business Week, and I took the opportunity to visit with several small businesses and entrepreneurs in our community.
