As the municipal elections draw near, it is extremely important that we review where we stand as regards our serving leadership. This is especially true when considering those who serve us in South Rock Island Township.
Our current Supervisor John Bauersfeld is a natural leader, tried and true with township supervisor.

John is an individual with strong fiscal knowledge and a proven visionary regarding our township's future. Additionally, he is currently treasurer for the Township Supervisors of Illinois Board and has served on that board for the past four years.

He oversees a strong and vital General Assistance Program for those who qualify, providing basic allowances for rent, food, utilities, clothing and personal/household supplies, benefiting those in our community truly in need of assistance. There is also oversight responsibility for administrating medical assistance for those that qualify for GAP, and emergency assistance for families with children to preclude life-threatening circumstances.

John has displayed unswerving dedication and commitment to his responsibilities and on behalf of us citizens as supervisor and he deserves to continue in that capacity.

Vote to re-elect John Bauersfeld South Rock Island Township supervisor.

Jack Michalski,
Rock Island
