For the first time since she was sworn in, Congresswoman Cheri Bustos is visiting Rockford.
During her visit, Bustos met with Mayor Larry Morrissey and the Rockford Economic Development Council about their needs and what they want from Washington. The two cited job creation and putting the middle-class first as some of their top priorities.
The newly elected Democrat represents the 17th District and has pledged future visits to Rockford to keep in touch with her constituents.
