February 27, 2017
Press Release

SCHAUMBURG, Ill. – Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi held his first town hall meeting on February 24 at Roosevelt University's Schaumburg campus, answering questions on a vast array of topics, including the Affordable Care Act, career and technical education policies, immigration, advances in nuclear fusion, school vouchers, raising the minimum wage, the Trump Administration's ties to the Kremlin, and the repeal of the Johnson amendment that bars churches and other tax-exempt organizations from engaging in political activity.
 
“Now is not a time to agonize,” Rep. Krishnamoorthi said. “It's a time to organize around these issues, forming and joining advocacy groups. In all of the challenges, a ray of hope is how people have gotten together and thrown sand in the gears of the excesses of the [Trump] administration.”
 
In addition to meeting with and answering questions from the overflow crowd of more than 300 constituents at the town hall itself, Rep. Krishnamoorthi will be responding on social media to questions submitted by the crowd which did not fit into the 90-minute forum.
