HENRY J. FRICK
To the Citizens of Rock Island: I have decided to
be a candidate for nomination as commissioner be
fore the primary Feb. 28. My petition has been cir
culated, and I have met with much encouragement
from my fellow citizens,
I am now serving my second term as a member of
the Rock Island city council, having been reelected
by the voters of my ward, the Fourth, at the expira
tion of my first term. I am chairman of the fire and
light committee of the 'present city council and a
member of the finance committee. I have devoted
myself assiduously to the work of the city as far as
it has been in my power to do so. My record for
honesty, fairness and thoroughness is open to all
who may be interested. In the four years that I
have served in the council I have had time to study
the city's business, and feel that I am thoroughly fa-
miliar with it.
I am also a member of the board of control of
the Rock Island Industrial Commission. I was born
and reared in the Fourth ward. I have built up a
successful business through my own efforts. I have
a family and am a taxpayer. If it is the verdict of
the citizens of Rock Island that I am chosen to
serve them as a member of the first commission, I
have arranged to turn my business over to other
hands and will devote my whole time to the city.
HENRY J. FRICK
Citizens of the City
of Rock Island
I, the undersigned, have decided to place myself
before you as a candidate for commissioner, sub
ject to your approval at the primary to be held Feb.
28, next. I have lived in the city of Rock Island all
my life, I have served you as city clerk and col
lector for nearly four years, during which time I
have gained much valuable experience in municipal
work, which I think will enable me to serve yeu bet
ter than ever before. I have all the time that I have
been in your employ attended strictly to business,
and have never let anything interfere with my work
but have always been on the job, and done the very
best I knew how, which I intend to do in the future,
if you again place me in your service. If you think
that I will make a good commissioner, boost just a
little for me. My policy has been, is now, and always
will be, equal rights to all and special privileges to
Thanking you for your support in the past and
trusting that you have been satisfied with my ser
vice, I remain,
Very Truly Yours,
M. T. RUDGREN
