McHenry County residents make the trip to D.C. with hopes for the future
By plane, train and automobile, Maggie Rivera and Paula Yensen made their way to Washington, D.C., on Friday morning.
Their ultimate destination is the West Front of the U.S. Capitol Building, where President Barack Obama will be sworn in today for his second term. It is the fourth inauguration for Rivera, of Crystal Lake – Midwest vice president of the League of United Latin American Citizens – and the first for Yensen, of Lake in the Hills – one of the McHenry County Board’s two Democratic members.
Both secured tickets for the inauguration, and both have hopes for what Obama and a deeply divided Congress can accomplish over the next four years.
