Congresswoman Cheri Bustos tours local community colleges


Congresswoman Cheri Bustos kicked off her statewide Communities Working Together for Jobs Tour in Rockford and Dixon on Monday.

Bustos visited Sauk Valley Community College in Dixon and Rockford's Rock Valley College. Bustos recently wrote a letter to President Obama about designating Rockford as a manufacturing innovation hub, one of only three that will be founded around the country.

The goal of the tour is to help Bustos learn more about the 17th District and how local colleges and businesses can address the skills gap, increase manufacturing, and bring more jobs to the community.

Later in the week, Bustos will visit Illinois Central College in East Peoria, Spoon River College in Canton, and Highland Community College in Freeport.
