Running to give residents opportunities

Published: Monday, April 1, 2013 1:15 a.m. CST

My name is John Spaine. I am a candidate for village president of Mount Morris.

I have lived in the village for 45-plus years. I also have seen jobs leave the village.

In my opinion, the current village leadership has been over-focusing on tourist-related activities instead of bringing businesses and employment opportunities back to the village.

I am running for village president because I care about our village’s future and shall do what I can to bring back lost businesses and give future village residents opportunities that current village retirees were once given.

Yes. Sterling and Dixon have had bans for years. It’s time for Rock Falls to impose a ban.
No. It would be too great a burden for homeowners to dispose of fallen leaves in other ways.
