Dennis Pauley has been a capable and accomplished mayor for Rock Island. His tenure has been marked by economic growth, continued high quality city services, and citizen engagement on many levels.

Anthony Heddlesten is a bright, capable, and conscientious candidate for 5th Ward Alderman. As an engineer Anthony is an analyst and a problem solver. As a neighbor he is responsible and involved with neighborhood projects. He will take the time to understand problems and challenges and work to build consensus about solutions.

I urge voters to re-elect Dennis Pauley for mayor, and I urge 5th Ward voters to elect Anthony Heddlesten as our alderman.

director of development,
