We encourage our 5th Ward friends and neighbors to vote for Anthony Heddlesten for alderman.

We have known Anthony since he bought the home across the street several years ago (after being hired by the Corps of Engineers, Rock Island Arsenal).

Anthony is an intelligent and compassionate young man who cares deeply for Rock Island and the 5th Ward. An Eagle Scout, he immediately began to work for the betterment of his city and his neighborhood. He quickly became active in Broadway Neighborhood endeavors and became a Broadway Board member known for his willingness to help with whatever was needed.
He became involved with Neighborhood Partners, thereby spreading his volunteerism across the city.

When Anthony decided to run for alderman, he began by educating himself thoroughly on city affairs. He has attended almost every city council meeting and several planning sessions since initially considering running for alderman. He has gone house to house, knocking on doors and introducing himself to the constituents of 5th Ward.

He has offered his phone number and email address to give future constituents full access. He continues to be an active member of Broadway Board and Neighborhood Partners.

Anthony is a problem solver, a trait which will certainly be invaluable on the council. He is a great friend and neighbor. We feel Anthony will be a tremendous asset to city council.

Please, vote for Anthony Heddlesten for 5th Ward alderman.

Wendy and Bill Rowand,
Rock Island
