Our mailman marvels every time another Chad Bohonek county board sign mushrooms on a lawn.
There is almost 100 percent coverage now -- unusual in these politically divisive times. It is that kind of neighborhood and Mr. Bohonek is respected, liked, and transcends political labels.
Passionate about stopping rubber-stamp spending, Bohonek brings a fresh approach and real-life business experience to budget-busting spending. So like our mailman, we marvel too, that Rock Island District 19 has the opportunity to elect a fresh voice and hard-working, business-savvy candidate, such as Chad Bohonek.
We are counting on him to throw open the door, pry up a few windows, and pound on the table now-and-again on the taxpayers' behalf.
Linda & Patrick McConnell,
Rock Island
