As you read this, right now there is a tireless county board member continuing her life long work serving the people of Rock Island County.

This person is the one and only Ginny Shelton. Ginny spent the last 30 years helping our veterans get the benefits they earned and deserve. While Ginny's opponent pounds his chest on the evils of our county, Ginny continues to do what she does best, help our community.

Elect Ginny Shelton, a person proud of our county and someone who we can be proud of.

Andrew Waeyaert,
Moli
