Character tends to say a lot about an individual. After having several conversations with Bill Bloom, candidate for Rock Island County Board District 9, we firmly believe he would be a breath of fresh air for the board.
Not only is he an outstanding, qualified individual, he is also one of our Clean Slate 2012 Candidates of Rock Island County. Mr. Bloom is a kind, caring and compassionate man who does not resort to malicious and false accusations unlike his opponent.
Mr. Bloom is a positive inspiration and we are extremely confident that if he were elected to the Rock Island County Board he would bring something to the Board that has been missing for a long time, fair, honest and transparent representation to the county residents.
Dan & Michele Banaszek,
Moline
