McLean County board member seeks re-election.

 

Jim Soeldner (R-District2) announced his intention to seek his 3rd term as a McLean County Board Member.

Soeldner says his goal is to continue to work for the voters of his district, as well as those throughout the county.

He says “I hope to continue to assist Chairman McIntyre in leading this county to better times, even in light of the Illinois General Assembly’s decision to continue to burden the taxpayers of Illinois with higher taxes and no real reforms.”

“I hope with the help of like-minded board members, to keep county real estate taxes low, to maintain and improve roads and bridges in the rural parts of McLean County, and to work towards aiding those with mental health issues to see a brighter, healthy future,” says Soeldner.

He says he wants to continue working and cooperating with local city, village, and township governments, to better the country for all citizens.

Soeldner states, “We have our differences, but mostly we all want to make life better for all of us, as well as future generations.”

“I’ve voted on many unpopular issues, knowing that it would make some citizens unhappy, but I always do what I believe is in the best interest of all people. The times when I’ve had disagreements with my fellow board members, I’ve always respected their point of view, and tried to be polite, but also firm. I always listen to my constituents, and try to understand the views on issues.”

Soeldner has served on the board for the past nine years. He says. “I’ve loved every minute.”

He hopes to serve for another four years.
