U.S. Rep. Bill Foster was back in the 11th Congressional District for a campaign event this week after being sworn in last week as the area’s newest congressman.

But the campaign event wasn’t for him — Foster turned out to support Mavis Bates, a candidate for alderman from Aurora’s 4th Ward, at a gathering Wednesday at Royal Banquets on Lake Street. Bates was active in Foster’s congressional campaign.
