Running to give residents opportunities

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

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.
