6th Ward Alderwoman Stephanie J. Elliott's Endorsement:

Today, I am endorsing David Goins for Mayor because I believe he is the best person to move the Alton Community forward. I have known David Goins for many years dating back to East Junior High School. From academics to his role on the basketball court, he has always been one to give 100 percent of himself to achieve his goals while being the best that he can be, always having the utmost respect for and from his classmates and competitors.

"As a former Alton Comptroller and current 6th Ward Alderwomen, I understand the current and future challenges facing our city. As Alton attempts to turn the corner, we need a mayor who is committed to open communication and action when engaging with our citizens’ and businesses’ issues. This country, including Alton, is attempting to recover from the pandemic, racial and civil unrest, reopening our schools and businesses in a sustainable manner. David Goins has the leadership skills that will be required to guide the Alton Community during these critical times with trust, integrity, and an ability to bring various Alton stakeholders to the table. Dave is a lifelong respected resident, retired Alton Police Officer of 25 years, Pastor for 19 years, and Alton School Board member for four years.

"David possesses the type of professional and personal skills to guide a new Alton resurgence. For the future of Alton, I am asking you to vote for David Goins on April 6."

Sincerely, Stephanie J. Elliott

6th Ward Alderwoman
