Bustos Statement on the Passing of Former House Leader Bob Michel

PEORIA – Today, Congresswoman Cheri Bustos (IL-17) issued the following statement upon the passing of former U.S. House Minority Leader Bob Michel:

“Whether it was his courageous service in World War II, his work to strengthen Illinois or his bipartisan approach to leadership in Congress, Bob Michel was one of Peoria’s best. Bob Michel proved that if Democrats and Republicans are willing to reach across the aisle and work together, then we can achieve great things for the people we serve. I join with all Peorians in giving thanks for the example he set and offering my heartfelt condolences to his friends, family and loved ones.”
