Letter: Robert Young Is Part of the Solution
Rockford Register Star, Letter to the Editor, January 31, 2020
There has never been a more important time to throw our support behind community champions that want to do the hard work. The current state of the Winnebago County Board is a daily reminder of that. But hope springs eternal when there are people like Rob Young who aren’t afraid to dig in.
Last spring, Rob and I ran as slate mates for the Rock Valley College board of trustees. I could not have found a better person to run with, because I always knew that Rob was in it for the right reasons.
My work with Rob continues as we serve together on boards. Rob is spearheading efforts in support of the Family Peace Center, serves on the strategy team for Next Rockford, volunteers for Shatter Our Silence and is on the board of directors for the Natural Land Institute, Rockford Promise and the Rockford Chamber of Commerce. Investing in so many different areas takes a monumental amount of energy and dedication.
Rob will throw his passion and talent behind serving the residents of District 17. I urge you to support his candidacy and help us all reap the benefits of electing solutions-focused leaders to public office.
