“As 11th District residents deal with widespread flooding, I offer my full assistance and that of my office to individuals and local governments needing help.
“Any resident needing assistance with federal agencies can contact my district office at 630-585-7672 or my Washington, DC office at 202-225-3515. I encourage anyone facing delays, obstructions or red tape as they deal with the aftermath of the flooding to contact my office and let us know how we can help.
“As cleanup continues I encourage all residents to stay safe and follow the recommendations of their local officials and emergency responders.”
