On Tuesday, vote for Bill Bloom, candidate for Rock Island County Board, District 9.

Bill is an honest and truly concerned citizen. He was a 30-year employee of Deere & Co., now retired.

After retiring from Deere, he served for one year on the Moline Housing Authority in an unpaid capacity as a commissioner. He is currently a member of the Clean Slate 2012 Republicans. Bill is one of us and has the interest of the people of Rock Island County at heart.

Bill's opponent is a former Republican who became a Democrat after he was rejected by the Rock Island County Republicans.

Vote for Bill Bloom, a candidate of and for the people; someone who runs for office for those he represents. Mr. Bloom can be congratulated for running a clean, issues based campaign. He is a true patriot!

Lois Frels,
Moline

1989 — 25 years ago: A few years ago, a vacant lot on 7th Avenue and 14th Street in Rock Island was a community nuisance. Weeds grew as high 18 inches. Today, the lot has a new face, thanks to Michael and Sheila Rind and other neighbors who helped them turn it into a park three weeks ago.
