Jim Wozniak is a fair, honest, and hard-working experienced prosecutor. He is currently an assistant Rock Island County states attorney, former city councilman, and volunteer teacher of impoverished children in India.

Jim has embraced the people of Rock Island County and has been showing strong leadership throughout his campaign. He is liked and respected by the other assistant states attorneys in his office and by law enforcement in the county.

His opponent, John McGehee, on the other hand has no experience as a prosecutor. His experience has mainly been in civil court. Previously, McGehee ran for a judgeship as a Republican and lost. He then switched parties.

Many in the legal community believe, if elected, McGehee will use the office as a stepping stone to a judgeship.

So who do you think will do the best job for the county as the states attorney, someone who has no experience as a prosecutor and switched parties just to be elected so he could pursue his desire to be a judge or Jim Wozniak who has experience as a prosecutor and has shown that he has integrity and responsibility and will use his leadership abilities to work hard to protect all the people of Rock Island County?
