Protesters demonstrate outside of Hultgren, Roskam event

As U.S. Reps. Randy Hultgren, R-Plano, and Peter Roskam, R-Wheaton, were expected to arrive for a chamber luncheon at Eagle Brook Country Club in Geneva, about 40 protesters from both of their districts gathered on the sidewalk near the entrance.

Protesters held homemade signs addressing health care, the environment and financial reforms – and about unseating Hultgren and Roskam in the 2018 midterm election.

Candice Widerski of St. Charles, who is in Hultgren’s district, carried a sign stating, “Climate change is real.”

“I’m here to have my voice heard by my representative,” Widerski said.

Naperville resident Holly Hootman's sign highlighted her family's pre-existing medical conditions of epilepsy, Crohn's and heart disease.

"Before the [Affordable Care Act], because of pre-existing conditions, it was a constant fight with insurance companies," said Hootman, who lives in Roskam's district.

Crystal Lake resident Susan Labaj, who is also in Roskam’s district, said Roskam will not host a town hall to meet with constituents.

“So we have come to him to give him our message that he works for us,” Labaj said.
