AURORA, Ill. – State Rep. Stephanie Kifowit, D-Oswego, recently toured the Pepsi distribution center in Aurora to discuss the importance of creating jobs, especially for veterans.

“I think it’s important for elected officials to have knowledge of and connect with businesses in our communities,” Kifowit said. “I appreciate Pepsi letting me visit their facility, discuss their plans for the future of the plant and meet the hardworking men and women who work at the facility. I have always admired Pepsi for their dedication to our veterans.”

Kifowit toured the Pepsi distribution center and learned how the facility operated. Following the tour, she held a round table discussion where she answered questions from employees about many issues facing the state and pending legislation.
