Illinois State House District 76 issued the following announcement on Sept. 24

State Rep. Lance Yednock, D-Ottawa, is helping local jobseekers partner with local employers by working with the Illinois Valley Community College to host a job fair on Tuesday, Oct. 15 from 2 p.m. until 6 p.m. at the IVCC campus in Oglesby.

“I want Illinois’ middle class to be stronger than it is, and that means helping people find jobs,” Yednock said. “It is tough to make ends meet, and with the sudden closure of the Del Monte Foods in Mendota and the Hennepin Power Plant in our area, employers and employees need to work together to keep our economies going and ensure people know about what opportunities are available here.”

Yednock and the Illinois Valley Community College will be hosting a joint job fair to help local businesses offer open employment opportunities for job seekers. Due to limited spaced at the college, interested business owners must RSVP for this event in order to participate. To do so, please call at 815-324-5055 or email After receipt of an RSVP, additional information about set up, tables, and chairs will be provided.

“I strongly encourage both employers and employees to participate in this event, as their joints efforts will create a better Illinois and middle class in short and long term,” Yednock said. “I look forward to working with IVCC and local employers to help people find work that is best for them and their families.”
