Congressman Walsh Sets Up Fox Lake Office

It was reported in today’s Daily Herald that 8th District Congressional Representative Joe Walsh will be opening up a northern area office in Fox Lake at Grand and Forest Drive. Walsh stated that it was extremely important to open up an office in areas that often get ignored and that he is hoping to have a grand opening sometime in mid-February.

Fox Lake Mayor Ed Bender couldn’t have been more pleased having Walsh’s office located in downtown Fox Lake. He stated that having Walsh’s office in town would raise the visibility of the area and will give Fox Lake the opportunity to show off what they have to offer.

Walsh also hopes to open up another office in the southern area of the District but gave no specifics on when or where it might be located.

    He should as payback for delivering the office of Congress to him. Fox Lake had more people come out to vote who hadn’t been out to vote in decades.

  • I urge you- DO NOT RAISE the debt ceiling. The Federal government and Congress have historically been poor stewards of the American public’s money. The last 70 years or so show that as the debt ceiling is raised, so the unbalanced budget increases. This has got to stop. Spending more money in the budget than the revenue coming in has very bad effects on the American economy overall. It is criminal the way politicians spend the American taxpayer’s money.

    The problem is not the debt ceiling, the problem is the DEBT. Reduce the debt, get rid of special interest spending, and eliminate welfare and Medicaid. Leave Social Security and Medicare alone. SS & MC should not be touched because our American seniors have worked for the benefits of SS & MC. They paid into these programs and were promised they would be there as an investment to be realized upon their retirement.

    Do not raise taxes. Instead, create an environment for PRIVATE BUSINESS to be able to hire more United States citizens to attain fuller employment. Then there will be more people working able to pay income taxes thereby increasing tax revenue.
