There's one contested race in Galva Township. Gus Interial and Ron Workheiser are running for road commissioner. Mr. Workheiser did not return a candiate's questionnaire to The Dispatch/Rock Island Argus.

NAME: Gus Interial
AGE: Not listed
ADDRESS: Galva
OCCUPATION: Highway maintainer with Illinois Department of Transportation
FAMILY: Wife Becky, children Anthony, Philip, Jacob, Stephany, four grandchildren
EDUCATION: Graduated Galva High School, attended Black Hawk College

POLITICAL PARTY: Democrat running as an independent
OFFICE SOUGHT:Galva Township Road Commissioner
PRIOR OFFICE:none
WHY RUNNING: I will maintain Galva roads at all times, making them safe for who use them. Giving taxpayers better service for their hard-earned money.
KEY ISSUE: Present condition of Galva's rural roads is not good. Because they haven't been maintained as they should, some are unsafe. Keeping the roads maintained is my number 1 priority. I do not farm, so I am available at all times in every season.
COMMENTS:I will begin clearing roads of snow and ice during the storm because I understand that residents need to be able to get in and out at all times.In warmer weather I will mow road banks when necessary keeping overgrowth to a minimum. Potholes will be filled promptly, roads will be maintained adding gravel, chipping and tarring, and repairing bridges and culverts when necessary.
