NAME: Nick Camlin
AGE: 25
ADDRESS: Rock Island,
OCCUPATION: Lights On For Learning grant coordinator at Washington Jr. High, Rock Island
FAMILY: Single
EDUCATION: Bachelor's in political science, Augustana College
POLITICAL PARTY: Democratic party
OFFICE SOUGHT: Clerk of South Rock Island Township
PRIOR OFFICE: Currently a member of the County Board, Dist. 15
WHY RUNNING: My goal as a public servant is simple: better government. I can bring my experiences to the township to help enhance its services to our residents.
KEY ISSUE: The clerk is part-time, but it is important because the clerk keeps official records, takes meeting minutes and handles intergovernmental exchanges. I'll make sure the township's work is done openly and honestly.
COMMENTS: As a life-long resident of Rock Island, I love our community and want to see it grow and improve. I serve on the boards of directors for Arrowhead, Project NOW and Quad City Area Labor Management Council, and have been a coach of youth track & cross country.
