The measure of a man or woman

Posted2/12/2018 1:00 AM

Regardless of political party, choices were made by our congressmen to bring guests to the State of the Union address to honor them -- a medical student who came here as a 10-year-old under DACA, a U.S. Naval Academy Midshipman, an advocate for victims, etc.

However, U.S. Rep. Peter Roskam, a Wheaton Republican, once again does not choose from his constituency for a guest recipient, but rather has his wife join him. Self-centered political posturing. It's "all about him."

Keep that in mind next time you vote.
