I am writing in support of David Parker for McLean County Board District 9. David likes to say he would rather stay and fight for what’s right rather than run away from problems. He is a refreshing voice at a time when so many people feel jaded and cynical about government.
He decided to run for county board because he was concerned about the nursing home. He believes that the county must maintain the home to ensure that seniors who must ultimately go on Medicaid have a safe, quality facility to take care of them when they can no longer care for themselves.
David is also fed up with Springfield’s unfunded mandates and the withholding of tax monies. When elected, David will work diligently with all members of the county board, regardless of party, to find ways to sustain county services without increasing your taxes.
