Congressman Bill Foster released the following statement after being sworn in as the U.S. Representative for Illinois’ 11th Congressional District:
“Today, I was honored to be sworn in to represent Illinois’ 11th Congressional District.
“We face serious issues in the coming months that will require compromise and bipartisanship. Last November, voters sent a clear signal to their representatives – it’s time to put aside the partisanship and political posturing and start getting to work on the tough problems we face.
“As I return to the Financial Services Committee, I look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to pass meaningful reforms that will strengthen and support hard-working middle class families, manufacturing businesses like the one my brother and I started so many years ago that create good jobs, and seniors who depend on their retirement security.”
