Letter to the Editor: "Rob Young is what the Winnebago County Board needs"
Rockford Register Star Opinion: Letter to the Editor, published March 6, 2020
Now that we’ve both reached our mid-80s and spent a good many years supporting nonprofits and community issues, we have been searching for new young leaders. We are proud, therefore, to endorse Rob Young for the 17th District seat on the Winnebago County Board.
We believe that this mature, intelligent, reasonable 32-year-old decision-maker would be a welcome and valuable addition to this problem-plagued board. Young has had extensive experience leading Midwest Packaging and has worked conscientiously with numerous nonprofit organizations for many years. He is an empathetic leader who wants to help the county board begin to work together to help this community.
We think his calm, good judgment is sorely needed.
— Jack and Colleen Holmbeck, Rockford
