Congresswoman Mary Miller visited Grafton on Saturday, Jan. 28, touring the city with Mayor Mike Morrow.
“I had a wonderful day touring Grafton with Mayor Morrow,” Miller said in a press release. “We visited eight small businesses, and I had the opportunity to discuss infrastructure, economic development, and the need to defend affordable energy.”
Congresswoman Miller’s tour included multiple businesses throughout Grafton including Grafton Harbor, Mosby Woodworks, Knotty by Nature, the Lighthouse coffee shop, Harrison’s Gifts, The Loading Dock, Aeries Resort, and the Grafton Pub.
During the visit, Joe and Jan DeSherlia of Grafton Harbor, discussed the importance of the Grafton Ferry to the community while Mayor Morrow briefed the congresswoman on the IDOT study grant with the Port District to examine current ferry operations and what Grafton hopes to achieve with increased ferry activity.
Before finishing the tour Peter Allen met with the mayor and congresswoman at the Loading to discuss the rising cost of energy and the country’s borders.
“Our electric bills have doubled, a real hardship for everyone,” Allen said. “Congress needs to secure our southern border, from my perspective this is very important.”
