Elect Looney, Spivey trustees at Black Hawk

I strongly encourage voters to go to the polls April 4 to support Jon Looney and Steve Spivey for election to the Black Hawk College Board of Trustees.

Since the college was founded decades ago, Black Hawk has jump-started the successful careers of thousands of young people. But the college has been struggling in recent years. Enrollment is down, and there has been a revolving door of short-term presidents at the college, which has caused leadership to suffer.

Jon Looney and Steve Spivey are both highly successful graduates of Black Hawk College. Jon served for several years as the information technology officer for the college, and he is now in charge of IT for Union Federal Savings, which has branches in Illinois and Wisconsin. 

A Kewanee resident, Jon has intimate knowledge of the operations of the college, and he has great ideas for improving the marketing and recruiting for the campuses in Moline and Kewanee-Galva.

A cattleman from New Windsor, Steve Spivey previously served on the Black Hawk College board and was twice elected by his peers to be board chair, during a period when the college was stable and strong. Steve knows how to lead.

Vote for Jon and Steve April 4 – for the sake of Black Hawk College.

Note to readers: The Black Hawk College District takes in part of southwestern Whiteside County, including Erie.
