My husband, Ron Miller, former fire chief for the city of Moline, is running for Moline alderman at large, and as concerned voters, you could not cast your vote for a more honest, dedicated, knowledgeable representative. All politics aside, Ron's integrity and his passion for doing what is best for the citizens of Moline is unmatched, as proven through 30 years of service to this city, regardless of any personal cost.
Ron does his research on the issues facing Moline, and with no hidden agendas, bases his decisions on that research, along with the input he receives from the citizens he represents. Ron truly listens to and cares about this city and its citizens, knowing he works first and foremost for them. Bottom line, isn't that what we're all looking for in our city leaders?
This letter may come off as simple, and a little biased, but it is sincere, and your vote for Ron Miller on Tuesday, will be one of the best things anyone could do for this city. You won't be sorry.
