US House of Representatives
Illinois, 17th District
Representative Cheri Bustos, an award-winning former journalist and city councilwoman from East Moline, is the first female elected to Congress from Illinois’ 17th District. Her first term has been productive, as a sponsor of a bipartisan farm bill and jobs legislation.
I have made advocating for women and families a focus throughout my life and career. I have always fought to ensure that women have equal opportunities and a voice in the most important issues facing our communities, whether in the workplace, in education, or in the public sector.
