Mautino is good for the Illinois Valley

State Rep. Frank Mautino is an experienced leader who works for the benefit of everyone in the district — regardless of political party; and everyone — regardless of political party — benefits from his work. When somebody walks into Frank’s office and asks for his help, he don’t ask what political party they belong to he just helps them successfully resolve their problems. Mautino has the skill and experience to do it.

I was mayor of Granville for 12 years and on the council for eight, and when we needed anything, Frank Mautino was there for us. When the 2004 tornado devastated Granville, Mautino was on site to evaluate the damage immediately and worked tirelessly to help us rebuild. When the fire destroyed many buildings downtown, my council and I turned to state Rep. Frank Mautino for help in rebuilding. When we needed grant money for infrastructure improvements and recreational facilities, Mautino was there for us and came through for us.

The bottom line is this: Republicans and Democrats who care about the area and want to keep building on the solid foundation that state Rep. Frank Mautino has helped our communities building should be supporting Mautino. He is a proven, effective leader who has brought great benefits to the communities he represents.
