Moline Residents Invited to Meet and Greet City Council Candidates
MOLINE – With just days before the Moline Mayoral and Aldermanic Elections, city council candidates Sangeetha Rayapati for Mayor, James Patrick Schmidt for Alderman-at-Large, Alvaro Macias for 2nd Ward Alderman, and Matt Timion for 4th Ward Alderman will hold a Rally for Change to engage Moline residents in dialogue. The rally will take place on Sunday, March 28 from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Esperanza Center parking lot, 335 5th Ave. Moline. The candidates will be encouraging voters to make their voices heard in this election. Polls are open now for early voting and will be open through Election Day, April 6.
“We want to take one more opportunity to help Moliners get to know us and how we differ from our opponents. It’s important to share our commitment to responsible decision-making that doesn’t risk services or send hard earned tax dollars to Chicago.” says Moline Mayoral candidate and organizer Sangeetha Rayapati. “Moline voters are invited to come and get a true assessment of all the issues that are at stake in this very important election.”
The event will kick-off with a special musical performance by Moline musician Kevin Carton of Minus 6 and will have children’s activities and a bake sale from the “Bakers for Change”.
“During this campaign, we’ve talked to so many people who share our vision of bringing new perspectives and new priorities in the city council, and I’m excited to gather with some of them at this rally,” Moline Alderman-at-Large Candidate James Patrick Schmidt says. “This is a chance to have our residents send a message that we want to take our city in a better direction.”
Moline residents can vote early at the Rock Island County Clerk’s Office, County Office Building, First Floor, 1504 3rd Ave., Rock Island. Polls are open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. through April 5, except for April 2.
