Peter Roskam is presently the fourth-ranking Republican and Chief Deputy Majority Whip in Congress. He has modeled responsible citizenship and has served his community with pride during his time in Congress, earning him a stellar reputation among colleagues and constituents.
Roskam is striving to address some of the biggest issues facing our nation today, such as, cutting government spending, reforming the tax code, and reducing stifling government regulations, thus allowing small businesses to thrive and to create new jobs in suburban Chicago.
Roskam supports measures that empower parents and help families to succeed and is pushing to get the economy moving again, to improve the quality of life at home and at work. Peter Roskam was awarded Working Mother magazine's "2012 Best of Congress Award" for his voting record of protecting families and for flexible work policies.
Now, more than ever, we need dedlicated leaders who are committed to finding workable, common-sense solutions to our nation's toughest challenges. Peter Roskam is one of those leaders, and that's why I'm voting to re-elect Roskam to Congress on November 6th.
Rev. Jeannette Sutfin, P.C.(USA)
