Rep. Jimenez Pleased with Progress of First District Economic Development Summit

“On Monday, I hosted an economic development meeting in Chatham that brought together local elected officials and business owners in Chatham to hear from and discuss with the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) and the Illinois Department of Economic Opportunity (DCEO) economic development issues. Both IDOT and DCEO provided information about economic development programs offered through their agencies that local units of government can utilize that can help spur economic growth in their communities. I am pleased that the Village of Chatham, along with the Chatham Chamber of Commerce, participated in this important discussion. “ - Rep. Sara Wojcicki Jimenez.
