Once again the privilege of voting is before us.

Even though this is considered a "smaller" election your vote Tuesday is still very important. Your vote is your voice for shaping how your community is run.
That is why in Moline I support Scott Raes for mayor, David Parker 2nd Ward, Dick Brown 4th Ward, Kevin Schoonmaker, 6th Ward and Stephanie Acri, alderman at-large. All the candidates have shown dedication for our community and have the best interest of citizens.

I especially appreciate having the talents of Stephanie on the council. Her business experience, knowledge of contracts and community service gives her a prospective for making decisions to benefit Moline as a whole. Personally speaking, I also appreciate having another woman's viewpoint on city council. Remember to vote!

Lori Turner,
5th Ward alderman,
Moline
