Rep. Keith Wheeler says Stop by Illinois House Speaker in North Aurora is a Gesture of Bipartisanship

Oswego Republican State Representative Keith Wheeler says Democratic Illinois House Speaker Emanuel “Chris” Welch stopped by an open house at his North Aurora Office of Friday in a gesture of bipartisanship.

Wheeler says it’s the first time in decades that anyone can recall that a Democratic House Speaker attended a Republican colleague’s event. Wheeler says the visit is not just symbolic and that he and Speaker Welch have worked together to pass legislation already. Previously, Wheeler has told WSPY news that he has a good working relationship with Welch, something he did not have with former Speaker Mike Madigan.

Other Democratic and Republican lawmakers were also in attendance including House Minority Leader Jim Durkin and Kendall County Board Chairman Scott Gryder.
