CONGRESSWOMAN ROBIN KELLY TAKES THE OATH OF OFFICE & THANKS SUPPORTERS FOR HAVING FAITH IN HER

Although she had already been sworn in for a new term on Jan. 3, 2019 as part of the 116th Congress, Congresswoman Kelly again took the oath of office on January 7, 2019 in Matteson, IL administered by Cook County Judge Anna Demacopoulos. Congresswoman Kelly spoke before a standing-room-only crowd of more than 200, including several mayors and other elected officials, such as Cook County Commissioner John Daley and Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx. Congresswoman Kelly said that “new opportunities are yet to be realized,” and that she hoped the swearing-in of Democrat J.B. Pritzker as Illinois’ governor could advance plans for an airport in the far south suburbs. “Our future is in our hands,” she told the audience. “Together we can get things done.”
