Hello! My name is Paul Williams, and I am asking for your vote for re-election for the Rockton Township Supervisor position this April 6th, 2021. I am currently the Rockton Township Supervisor, voted into this position by the Rockton Township board in July 2018. I was a Rockton Township Trustee at that time, serving my third term. Since I have been in the Supervisor position, we have made many improvements in this township, such as putting a new roof on the Civic Center, which was majorly needed. We are looking to do further improvements to that building for our community to use. We had cameras installed at the Township office to ensure safety and security. We have also had the sidewalks re-done around the township building so that they can accommodate the handicapped persons in a much better way, we and repaired the damaged areas. We installed a new cement pad for a bench near the updated sidewalk. We hope to be adding a message board for the township to see posted meets and events soon. We also hooked the Rockton Township building to the Rockton City sewer, which needed to be done due to a failed septic system. Within the past year, the Rockton Township contributed to the bike path on Rockton Road connection the Roscoe path at Door Road. We are also in a joint venture with Rockton Village and other agencies for a grant to run the bike path down Old River Road to Stephen Mack School. I look forward to further improvements for the Rockton Township people.
I have lived in the Rockton Township since 1990 with my wife and our 2 boys. Both boys went through the Rockton school system and both graduated from Hononegah High School.
I have been a union electrician for 30 years. I graduated from Northwestern Electrical Apprenticeship Program. I enjoy bicycle riding, antique cars, traveling and hunting.
I take pride in The Rockton Township and know there is no debt and we are financially responsible. I hope to earn your vote on April 6th and together we can continue to make Rockton Township even better.
