Roskam, Coolidge make their cases for Congress
Voters in Algonquin Township will have a new face representing them in the U.S. House of Representatives come January.
Post-census redistricting will put the townshipinto the redrawn 6th District. For the past decade it's been at the eastern tip of a district that stretched west to Iowa. Voters on Nov. 6 will choose whether to re-elect three-term Republican Rep. Peter Roskam, or elect Democratic challenger Leslie Coolidge to the new district, which will curve from southwest Lake and northwest Cook counties through Algonquin Township and northeast Kane County through the center of DuPage County.
Roskam, who is chief deputy whip in the 112th Congress, and Coolidge, a retired certified public accountant, spent time Monday talking with the Northwest Herald Editorial Board about their platforms for the district, which in McHenry County includes Cary , Fox River Grove and much of Crystal Lake, Algonquin and Lake in the Hills.
