    Rep. Cheri Bustos' Congressional campaign has announced a successful fourth quarter Federal Election Commission report. During the quarter, which ran from October 1 – December 31, the campaign raised more than $535,000 and ended with a cash on hand total of more than $2.8 million.

     

    With a median contribution of $10, hardworking families are stepping up and sending a message that they want Cheri Bustos to continue fighting for them in Congress.

     

    “Cheri Bustos has a proven record of fighting hard and getting real results for Illinois’ hardworking families and she continues to earn their support,” said Denise Mousouris, Finance Director for the Bustos Campaign. “People know Cheri and they know she will never back down from a fight when Paul Ryan and Washington special interests attack the middle class. With strong support from across the 17th Congressional District, Cheri is in position to win reelection this November.”

    The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH), along with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Food and Drug Administration, and other state and local health departments, is investigating a recent cluster of Salmonella ser. Montevideo infections.  Two cases have been identified in Illinois residents.  People in Illinois reported becoming ill on December 20 and 26, 2017.  Based on a review of produce, suppliers, and items consumed, investigators believe the most likely source of the infection is sprouts from multiple Jimmy John’s locations. 

    To reduce the risk to additional customers, IDPH has requested that all Jimmy John’s restaurants in Illinois remove sprouts from their menus until the investigation is complete.  IDPH is also reminding restaurants not to let food handlers with diarrhea work.  If you have developed symptoms of Salmonella infection after eating food at a Jimmy John’s restaurant please contact your health care provider or local health department.

    Symptoms of Salmonella may include headache, muscle aches, diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal cramping, chills, fever, nausea, and dehydration.  Symptoms usually appear 6 to 72 hours after ingesting the bacteria, but can be longer.  Most illnesses resolve on their own and do not require treatment other than drinking fluids to stay hydrated.  If your symptoms persist or are severe, promptly contact your health care provider.

    Salmonella bacteria live in the intestinal tracts of humans and other animals.  Almost any food can be contaminated with Salmonella.  Person-to-person transmission of Salmonella occurs when an infected person’s feces, from his or her unwashed hands, contaminates food during preparation, or comes into direct contact with another person.

  • Treasurer Mike Frerichs’ office is warning families with 529 college savings accounts that federal tax breaks do not apply to Illinois taxes in certain situations.

     

    The federal tax reforms now let’s families with accounts like bright start and bright directions use that money for “k” through 12 private school expenses, instead of just for college. But treasurer frerichs says parents going that route aren’t eligible for a state tax break.
