To the Editor:
We are writing to encourage voters in the city of DeKalb to elect Mike Verbic as our next mayor.
We have known Mike for many years and have always been impressed with his passion and interest in our community. His service on the school board has demonstrated his ability to lead a government body in a diverse city such as ours.
Mike is always interested in hearing all sides of an issue in a respectful and courteous manner and has proven himself to be an effective leader and skillful communicator. There are many issues in our community that will be addressed in the near future and Mike Verbic has the experience and interest to lead the city council to the best course of action.
At a time when finances are limited, Mike is very aware that the money the city spends belongs to the taxpayers of this community, and the city government is responsible to those taxpayers to invest wisely. Mike has the expertise to move the city of DeKalb forward for future generations.
Please join us in electing Mike Verbic as the next mayor of DeKalb on April 9, 2013.
Michael and Robin Rothamer
