Our son, Robert C. Vyncke, is running for re-election as South Moline Township clerk. He is a hard-working, outgoing person, and has the qualities and personality that are ideal to do the job of township clerk.

After working his way through college, Robert returned to the Moline area where he has successfully managed a small business in Moline for 33 years.
I was in local politics for more than 40 years, as an East Moline alderman, city clerk and a township clerk. My father was also in public service. Thus, I know what is required of the job and the reward of serving the citizens of this area.

It was a great experience for me and for my family. Robert grew up in that environment. Now, Rob has the desire to continue serving you. It is rewarding for my wife Terry and me to see that desire and to see how hard Rob is working to be your returning township clerk.

He and our family have enjoyed meeting many of you as we've been passing leaflets, and supporting Rob's campaign. I have always been impressed with our local community. I am confident that Rob will continue to serve you well as the township clerk you deserve.

Please vote Tuesday -- and please consider voting for Robert Vyncke. Your vote is very important! My family and I are grateful for your support.

Clarence "Clix" Vyncke,
East Moline

1989 — 25 years ago: A few years ago, a vacant lot on 7th Avenue and 14th Street in Rock Island was a community nuisance. Weeds grew as high 18 inches. Today, the lot has a new face, thanks to Michael and Sheila Rind and other neighbors who helped them turn it into a park three weeks ago.
