On Saturday, September 10, 2011, COAL was honored to host the Honorable Jesse Jackson Jr., US Congressman, as our featured speaker. Congressman Jackson provided insight into the redistricting process, as well as the new boundaries for Illinois’ 2nd congressional district. Just as importantly, the Congressman provided background, detail, and the current status for the Abraham Lincoln National Airport Commission (ALNAC) project, better known as the ‘Peotone Airport’. Breakfast attendees were impressed with the potential for jobs and opportunities for minority business that could be realized should this project get approved.
