All Chamber Members are encouraged to attend a special luncheon, Friday, March 22 with Chief Deputy Whip, Peter Roskam (R-Wheaton). This is a rare opportunity for you to interact with a member of leadership team of the U.S. House of Representatives. "We are very fortunate to have a member of the U.S. House leadership team representing Naperville," said Mike Evans, president & CEO of the Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce.
According to the Washington Post, Roskam "serves as a calming, drama-free influence" on Capitol Hill, and is regularly praised for his ability to distill complex national issues to their core.
Space will be limited for the luncheon and you are encouraged to reserve your seat early. Seating will only be guarenteed for individuals that have pre-registered for the event.
Roskam represents Illinois' 6th congressional district, making him one of Naperville's three members of the U.S. House. He has served in Congress since 2007 and is on the influential Ways & Means Committee.
About Peter Roskam:
Born and raised in the district he serves, Chief Deputy Whip Peter Roskam is now in his third term in the United States House of Representatives. According to the Washington Post, Roskam “serves as a calming, drama-free influence” on Capitol Hill, and is regularly praised for his ability to distill complex national issues to their core.
Roskam graduated from the University of Illinois before spending his early career in the office of his mentor, legendary Congressman Henry Hyde. He later earned his J.D. from Kent College of Law. Roskam has represented Chicago's western suburbs in both the Illinois House of Representatives and Senate, where he served alongside then State-Senator Barack Obama.
Often referred to as the House Republicans’ “listener-in-Chief,” Roskam uses his roles in leadership and on the Ways and Means committee to fight for fiscal responsibility and common sense tax initiatives; he is a co-author of the Pledge to America and played an active role in securing a landslide House majority in 2010.
Roskam currently lives in Wheaton with his wife of 24 years, Elizabeth. They have four children, Gracey, Frankie, Steve and A.J.
