Supporting Job Creation. Supporting Small Business. Buying American.

We need to do what we can to assure that our next generation has strong and varied opportunities to succeed professionally. We should promote policies that attract businesses and incentivize both blue collar and white collar job creation. In my time on Naperville’s City Council, I have consistently promoted economic development as a means of creating jobs and tax revenue for our community. I have also pushed for efficient government and streamlined permitting processes as a means of attracting opportunities for Naperville.

As a former junior college student, I fully appreciate the value and importance that the College of DuPage and trade schools have to our community. Lets support our community colleges and do what we can to attract jobs to DuPage County.

Shown below are various articles that highlight initiatives that I have been involved in, or supported, and which have benefitted job creation.

Timeline PhotosAs many of you are aware, Governor Pritzker announced last week, that face mask requirements for patrons of all Illinois bars and restaurants have been expanded to include mask use at tables while interacting with wait staff and while picking up orders for curbside pick-up or drive-through. These requirements are intended to protect front-line workers in these establishments. In the same press conference, he confirmed Will and Kankakee Counties will have additional restrictions due a rise in COVID-19 cases in these areas. Restrictions included no in-door dining in restaurant and 25% capacity level or 25 people gathering limit, down from 50% and 50, respectively. A full description of the mitigation requirements can be found at: dceocovid19resources.com/assets/Restore-Illinois/Resurgence-Migitations-Region-7.pdf.
Director of Government Affairs, Reba Osborne discusses some of the challenges our Member businesses face when adjusting to these restrictions in a recent Daily Herald article: tinyurl.com/8-28-dharticle.
