Retain Blanton to finish what he has started

With a “yes, we can” attitude, Rock Falls has made excellent strides in preparing for the future because of the dedication, leadership, and experience of Mayor Dave Blanton. 

Experience doesn’t come overnight. It takes a lot of dedication and cultivating the right contacts on a state and federal level to accomplish what Rock Falls has during Blanton’s two terms. 

There were many hard decisions that needed to be made to make the Rock Falls riverfront a reality. It takes years to gain the knowledge needed to perform at this level. Dave Blanton has put in those years. 

These are difficult days, yet under the leadership of Mayor Blanton, Rock Falls has had a balanced budget every year he has been mayor. 

I have known Dave for more than 25 years, and no one cares more about the future of Rock Falls. He deserves another term to finish what has been started.
