AREA OFFICIALS: A thankful community

The Clinton Herald posed the question, “What are you most thankful for?” to several area officials. Each day this week, we will feature responses to that question in anticipation of Thanksgiving on Thursday.

Dave Schutte, Camanche Fire Chief

“I am thankful for my family and friends.”

Jim Rhoades, Fulton, Ill., Police Chief

“I am thankful for people who choose to step up and help others whenever and wherever it is needed.”

Jill Davisson, Clinton County Board of Supervisors

"Reflection. There is always something to be thankful for; as for me, I believe it's all about perspective. I am thankful for family, fellowship and good health."

Brad Seward, CCASWA Director of Operations

“I'm thankful for a loving family, especially my very supportive wife. It's because of her support that I can continue to be involved in so many activities in our community. I'm also very thankful for the opportunity to work with three outstanding organizations (Clinton County Area Solid Waste Agency, Clinton LumberKings, and Clinton High School) and all of the people who support them.”

John Rowland, Clinton City councilman

“Thankful for my family and friends. Thankful for the abundant blessings God has provided to our nation. Thankful for all of the freedoms and opportunities we have in this wonderful country. Especially, thankful for the many years I have been able to spend with my wife, children, and grandchildren."

Jennifer Graf, Clinton City councilwoman

For this year and always, I am grateful my husband is a survivor from cancer after 36 radiation treatments and three overnight chemotherapy treatments that started with a sore throat in October 2011, diagnosis November 2011 with successful treatment ending in February 2012. No gift and no grateful will compare to this second chance for my husband and our life together. Thank you God, prayer, family and friends. A good man lives awhile longer.
