Jim Wozniak is receiving my vote for Rock Island County state's attorney for multiple reasons. First, he is an experienced prosecutor as assistant state's attorney, which his opponent John McGehee cannot say for himself. This experience will lead the county to convict offenders of violent crime efficiently by having a man that has the knowledge to make it happen. Wozniak will make the county safer for the people who live in it by using his experience to his advantage.

Second, it is time to put someone in this office who is incorruptible and has strong integrity. Wozniak will make the government more accessible to the people and make county government more transparent to the people who reside here.

Nobody will be able to corrupt this man. We all know that the state's attorney position has been through some tumultuous times with the disgraceful events that preceded the resignation of Jeff Terronez.

How can we trust John McGehee to bring integrity to this position when he switched party affiliations after losing his campaign to be a judge? John McGehee in office will only keep things in the county business as usual, and the citizens of this county deserve more.

It is time to put an end to the McGehee-Terronez machine that got us into this mess and give Rock Island County the state's attorney that it deserves.

Vincent Santuccio,
Rock Island
