March 18 is the primary election day in Illinois. I strongly encourage all eligible voters to go to the polls and vote for the candidates of your choice. This is a very important election at both the state and local level.

I am writing to endorse Tim Wells for the office of Henry County treasurer. Tim has the skills and experience necessary to do an outstanding job handling our county's money. His years in the banking business have prepared him well for this job. His proven leadership as Henry County Board chairman has demonstrated his ability to set goals and priorities to move our county forward while respecting the concerns of the taxpayers.

Tim has a real passion for Henry County. His direct personal involvement in economic development projects for many years has resulted in more jobs and additional income for many people as well as increased revenue for the county.

On March 18th I'll be voting for Tim Wells for Henry County treasurer. I respectfully encourage you to do the same.

Todd Sieben,
Geneseo
retired state senator
