Know before you vote

There are a few things Fairview Heights voters should know about Alderwoman Linda Arnold before going to the polls. Linda has not missed a City Council meeting since we elected her. She is hard-working, good-natured and has a great sense of humor. Arnold is a fair, honest and balanced person; she applies this to everything in life.

I wonder if those who have been critical of her for missing committee meetings know the truth. I do. Linda was the full-time caregiver for her 95-year-old grandma until her passing, shortly after Linda’s husband had a career-ending injury. She was working several jobs to support her family.

Linda has lost more than 100 pounds but she is not ill.

Maybe this will put the rumors to rest.
