Congresswoman Robin Kelly’s Statement on the Selection of Chicago’s South Side for the Obama Presidential Library

Washington, DC—(ENEWSPF)—May 12, 2015. Congresswoman Robin Kelly issued the following statement today in response to the city’s selection as the site for the future presidential library:

“I’m thrilled that President Obama has chosen Chicago’s South Side as the site for his presidential library and museum. In addition to being a premiere attraction of the city of Chicago and the state of Illinois, the library will anchor an economic development boon on the South Side that will create jobs and enrich the quality of life in the area. Perhaps most importantly, the building of a monument in honor of our country’s first African-American president will have an indelible impact for generations, as a testament to both the progress and the promise of our nation.”
