The 17th District's newest representative has taken up residence in Washington.
Cheri Bustos will represent northwest Illinois and the west side of Rockford in the House of Representatives. She has a new apartment in our nation's capital, but the democrat is still in need of a congressional office here in Rockford.
"Our District Director is in Rockford today and he is looking for locations where our office will be located," Bustos said.
She has been assigned to the Transportation and Agricultural Committees and joins 81 other new members of the U.S. House.
