Regarding the Moline Township election Tuesday, there is some disturbing information regarding how the salaries of Don Johnston, the elected supervisor, and Moline Township Clerk Jan Vroman have increased.

In the real world where you cannot give yourself raises, most working class people are lucky to see a 2 percent or 3 percent increase in salary on a yearly basis.

These elected politicians are giving themselves unsustainable raises and I cannot figure out how they can legally get away with this. They have increased Moline Township taxes.

The figures are public information and can easily be located online. They are putting the Moline Township Activity Center in jeopardy along with taking money from our pocket's to fill theirs.

I encourage everyone to vote for the Republican candidates for the Moline Township positions who have pledged to fix this financial mess and work on giving the hard earned money back to the working class people of the Moline Township. Without financially responsible people in elected positions, Illinois will keep falling apart.

Politics is local and your vote matters!
