Congresswoman-Elect Cheri Bustos was in the office of the Pekin Area Chamber of Commerce today. Executive Director Bill Fleming invited her to stop by and get acquainted. Bustos defeated Congressman Bobby Schilling just four weeks earlier and will be sworn in to represent the 17th Illinois Congressional District in four weeks.
Chamber President Drew Leman, Rich Kriegsman, Dennis Kief and Carol Shields also attended. The group heard about Bustos' plans and goals and also provided her updates on several local issues and projects, most notably Veterans Drive.
