LEMONT – Senate Republican Leader Christine Radogno (R-Lemont) was honored by the Illinois Chamber of Commerce on May 2 as a “Champion of Free Enterprise.”
Representatives from the Illinois Chamber, including Chamber President and CEO Doug Whitley and Midwest Director for JP Morgan Liz Hartigan Connelly, were on hand to present Radogno with the award in her Capitol Office.
“I am honored to have been named a Champion of Free Enterprise by the Illinois Chamber of Commerce,” Radogno said. “It’s important that we do all we can as legislators to encourage free enterprise and create opportunities for economic growth in Illinois. Helping businesses to establish and grow in Illinois creates jobs for Illinois citizens and provides an important boost for our state’s economy.”
The Illinois Chamber of Commerce recognizes legislators that have made a special contribution in defense of free enterprise and have worked to create economic opportunity for the people of Illinois.
Awards are presented to those who have received Illinois Chamber ratings of 85 percent or better during the previous four years, and who have also demonstrated a commitment to legislation that “frees the entrepreneurial spirit.”
