Roskam Hultgren No Shows
The League of Women Voters hosted a candidate forum at McHenry County College Monday night for candidates running in the 6th and 14th Congressional Districts. Both incumbent Congressman Roskam and Congressman Hultgren were no shows. Congressman Hultgren declined the request to attend and Congressman Roskam did not have the courtesy to respond.
Sean Casten, Democrat candidate 6th Congressional District and Lauren Underwood, candidate 14th Congressional District provided detailed and insightful answers to questions ranging from the environment, health care, tax reform, school violence and returning civility to the political arena.
Voters in District 2 were not given the opportunity to hear an exchange of ides and policies between incumbant and challenger; too bad.
