Local legislators meet with area businesses


Five Rockford-area lawmakers made a stop at Rock Valley College Wednesday to meet with local business owners.

The meeting addressed job creation and the cultivation of new economic development ideas. Adam Pollet, the director of the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, gave a presentation on how the DCEO can help area businesses.

After Pollet spoke, business leaders were invited to join an advisory group discussion on the area's economic future. The goal of the meeting was to create the potential for bipartisan legislation presented by a Rockford caucus.

Rep. John Cabello, Rep. Joe Sosnowski, Rep. Chuck Jefferson, Sen. Steve Stadelman, and Sen. Dave Syverson attended the meeting.
