I write this endorsement on behalf of Gerald Thompson, a candidate for the McLean County Board District 1. I have known Gerald Thompson for many years and recognize him to be a man of excellent character, common sense and the ability to work hard at whatever he attempts.
A graduate of the University of Illinois, he has held leadership positions prior to his candidacy, owning and operating his family farm and trucking business and serving as a member of the McLean County Farm Bureau board of directors. Gerald Thompson is highly respected by his peers, having been selected as the McLean County Country Farmer of the Year in 2009. I look forward to voting for Gerald Thompson on the ballot for McLean County Board District 1. I urge you to vote for Gerald Thompson as well.
Rev. Thomas C. Wirsing, Bloomington
