This forum will be part of his series of 14th Congressional District Events. The series is dedicated to uniting public officials, residents, experts, additional stakeholders and others to discover solutions for local problems.
“It’s impossible to overestimate the impact technology has had on how we all get from A to B, whether that’s commuting to Chicago or picking up your kids from school,” Hultgren said. “From ‘on-demand’ ride-sharing apps, to new road construction methods and materials, to vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication and more, new innovative technologies will continue to transform our community. But how do we maintain an understanding of these new technologies, use them for the good of northern Illinois and ensure we are planning ahead for the future as a community? The 14th District has worked together to tackle heroin and painkiller abuse, pursue solutions for healthcare affordability and accessibility and maintain local control over education. I am excited about how our community can come together in this next Community Leadership Forum on an issue touching everyone in the Chicago suburbs: transportation.”
The forum will be held at 10 a.m. on Aug. 20 in Plainfield.
