Quad Cities… State Representatives Tony McCombie (R-Savanna), Mike Halpin (D- Rock Island), and Dan Swanson (R-Alpha) are encouraging local residents to support Valley Construction, of Rock Island, in their efforts to help the Houston area recover from Hurricane Harvey.
“Valley Construction and other partners within our region continue to amaze me!  I am honored to help push this relief effort to our districts to not only reach our goals for the people of Texas, but also help prepare to provide relief to people of Florida” said Rep. McCombie.

It is no surprise that the company is extending its generosity to those affected by Harvey’s devastation, and I believe our compassionate community will step up and contribute what we can to this important cause,” said Rep.
