NAME: Dave McAdam
AGE: 67
ADDRESS: Rock Island
OCCUPATION: Excavation and demolition contractor
FAMILY: Wife, Jean; sons, Paul and Glen; five grandchildren
EDUCATION: Graduated Rock Island High School, journeyman carpenter, asbestos abatement training, supervisor level certification
POLITICAL PARTY: Non-partisan
OFFICE SOUGHT: Rock Island City Council 5th Ward seat
PRIOR OFFICE): Currently on Rock Island Zoning Board of Appeals
WHY RUNNING: To be part of the decision-making process, giving my years of business experience in working with the public, meeting payrolls and making tough decisions
KEY ISSUES: Jobs, budgets and taxes are everyone's concerns. Use of Public Works employees for street maintenance is a priority of mine. We need safer streets and a positive image to attract new business. Land and water-locked Rock Island must move to the south. Infrastructure investment in that area is a beginning.
COMMENTS: I bring the common sense of a tradesman, the knowledge of a contractor, and the abilities of a corporate president.
