Rock Island mayoral candidate David Levin is hosting an open house from 3 to 6 p.m. Thursday at his campaign office at3416 Blackhawk Road, Suite 203, Rock Island.

Light snacks and refreshments will be served.

"I am looking forward to discussing important issues with residents of Rock Island at our new campaign headquarters," Mr. Levin said. "This isn't a fundraiser, and it isn't a campaign rally. Instead, this is an opportunity for all residents to come in and sit down with me and discuss the issues, one on one, in a casual setting."

Mr. Levin is in a three-way race for mayor against incumbent Dennis Pauley and Rick Cassini.
