After reading the editorial on page A4 in Wednesday's Dispatch/Argus about the Rock Island mayoral race, I have questions.|
The paper seems to report that Mayor Dennis Pauley has brought a Walmart and a Fareway to Rock Island, although all stories that I've heard or read on both of these developments seem to be contradictory.
Earlier articles published about mayoral forums indicate that Walmart has not yet signed any kind of deal to bring a store to Rock Island.
The Fareway project is reported to have met with major environmental issues.
Being a citizen of Rock Island I am most interested in having both of these businesses come to Rock Island, but I don't think it is fair to give credit to the mayor as if these deals are already in place.
I hope that your reporting of both of these developments does not change the playing field for the other candidates involved, one of which has spoken out against both developments locations and the other has spoken out about one of the developments.
I sincerely hope that my fellow voters are thoroughly informed regarding these issues and that indeed everyone exercises their right to vote.
