Congressman Mike Quigley

Representing the 5th District of Illinois

Undercover Congressman

Since taking office in 2009, I have worked alongside fifth district residents in dozens of jobs so that I can better understand the challenges my constituents face on a daily basis. In D.C., we hear a lot about numbers, data and statistics, but it's a totally different thing when you hear about the impact policy and legislation is making in your district firsthand.

I've enjoyed going "undercover" in many business ranging from delivering mail to making pinball machines to working as a car hop at Superdawg. Below is a full list of the places where I have gone "undercover."

You can read more about my "undercover" visits in articles published by the New York Times, Inside Booster and Roll Call.
