I’ll be voting to give R.C. McBride a second term on the Normal City Council. Having had the good fortune to work with R.C. and see firsthand his dedication to community and service, I am pleased he has continued that dedication in his work on the council.
R.C. has been able to form his own position on issues facing Normal while listening to and respecting other opinions. He has helped make difficult decisions on budgeting for infrastructure improvement and maintenance, staffing and other issues facing the community while keeping our AAA bond rating and property tax rates unchanged.
As a longtime resident of Bloomington-Normal and a homeowner in Normal since 1979, I am proud that we have talented, committed members of the community such as R.C. McBride who are willing to serve and move Normal forward. By mail, or in person April 2, he has earned your vote.
Bruce Helling, Normal
