I have known the two Glen Carbon Mayoral candidates for several years. I have worked with Bob Marcus as a Planning and Zoning Commission member for 2 years and for the last 4 years as a Trustee on our Glen Carbon Village Board. I have worked with his opponent as a Public Works Department employee and currently as the Street Department Supervisor for about 16 years.

I consider them both colleagues and friends. I am endorsing Bob Marcus because I believe he is the best candidate for Glen Carbon Mayor. He has experience dealing with complex issues of the Village, management experience, volunteered many hours already to better the community and the education and energy to keep Glen Carbon moving in the right direction.
