Local Mayors Pick Their Congressional Candidate

Posted by wlpo on October 20, 2010

Two local mayors are putting their support behind Congresswoman Debbie Halvorson.

Halvorson’s campaign says Peru Mayor Scott Harl and Ottawa Mayor Bob Eschbach both endorse her in the race for the 11th congressional district.

Harl says the Democrat has “been very good for the city of Peru”.  He says her support for renewable energy, specifically wind power for the city “has been exceptional”.

Eschbach says Halvorson helped work with FEMA to bring a new Central Intermediate School to Ottawa.  He also says Halvorson played a role putting people to work by rebuilding the waste water treatment plant and paving streets with stimulus money.

Halvorson faces Republican Adam Kinzinger.
