Raja Welcomes Constituents At Schaumburg Office Open House With Special Guests Senator Dick Durbin and Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle
SCHAUMBURG, IL – Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi today hosted an open house and ceremonial swearing-in at his district office in Schaumburg. In front of a crowd so large it spilled into the building’s hallway, Senator Dick Durbin discussed the magnitude of the challenges facing the country and Raja’s role in addressing them. The oath of office was administered by U.S. District Judge Joan Gottschall, for whom Raja clerked following his graduation from law school.
“It was an honor to be joined by so many constituents, friends and family today, as well as such notable mentors and role models as Senator Durbin, County Board President Preckwinkle, and Judge Gottschall,” Krishnamoorthi said. “I look forward to continuing to stand up in Washington for the middle class. We need to make sure that growing and strengthening the middle class is a top priority on Capitol Hill. My constituents told me repeatedly today that repealing the Affordable Care Act will be a devastating blow for so many working families as well as the economy at large.”
