Editor, Register-Mail: I plan on voting for Peter Schwartzman for mayor of Galesburg in the coming election.
Peter has done many good things for Knox College and Galesburg in his 25 years of professorship there. And, in his 10 years as an effective member of our City Council, he has proven his intelligence, sensitivity, patience and ethical integrity. He listens and thinks clearly, which are refreshing traits in city government. I also hope that those who are able and in her district will vote for Sarah Davis. This will give Peter a better council to work with. We are on the cusp of change, and we need better servant leadership than ever before. Peter Schwartzman has a heart for service, a mind for detail and a will to do the right thing, at the right time, and in the right way for our fine city. — Bob Clark, Galesburg
