Vote Farster for supervisor

Published: Friday, April 5, 2013 1:15 a.m. CST

I write this letter to support Doug Farster for Dixon Township supervisor. I’ve known Doug since he was a teenager. He worked as summer help on my paint crew and eventually we served together on the Lee County Board.

He impressed me then with his work ethic as a teenager, and that same attitude has continued throughout his life. He is a dedicated family man. He has been and still is a very capable individual who has always stood on his own two feet.

Dixon Township has done well under his guidance, with balanced budgets every year. He runs a very transparent and open administration and has installed a system of checks and balances to assure financial transparency.

A vote for Doug Farster is a vote for a continued open and honest administration.

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.
