I urge the voters to support Rob Vyncke in his bid for re-election as South Moline Township clerk. I have been a trustee on the township board for 10 years. During this past term, I served alongside Rob Vyncke. He has done an exceptional job and truly deserves to be your clerk for the next four years.

Rob is very conscientious and efficient, arriving early for meetings and getting information out to the board. He is a very effective township clerk, working well with everyone from both parties. I've been impressed with his attention to detail, his initiative, and his heartfelt concern for our township.

I have enjoyed serving on the board with Rob Vyncke. It is my pleasure to endorse him for re-election as your South Moline Township clerk Tuesday. I recommend that you show him your support with your vote. I know he will continue to do an excellent job for the citizens of our township.

Robert "Bob" Seitz,
trustee,
South Moline Township
