Rock Island County Candidates
Russell Christ, candidate for Rico County Clerk. My name is Russell Christ. I am married and a resident of Rock Island, Illinois. I grew up on a farm in Hillsboro, Missouri and graduated from Kansas State College with a Bachelors degree in Industrial Technology. I was employed by Deere & Co. for 43 years, retiring in 2014. During this period I moved and lived in six different states. I was very active in Christian services at the churches throughout my years of travel. I am currently the 2nd Vice Chairman of the Rock Island County Republican Party.
The position of Rock Island County Clerk must perform at three basic levels:
1. TRUST, to provide data reports and recording of all Documents, Polices and Proceeding for all areas of responsibility of the County Clerk, to secure all Election Votes and County Equipment that will provide public confidence and security at all times, before/during/after elections, to report the results to the Voters, County Administration and the Illinois Board of Elections, to provide up-to-date data of all records for Licenses, Permits and Election results when requested.
2. ACCURACY, to provide a data base of all registered voters, to provide appropriate election Ballots for the current address of a voter, to report minutes of Rock Island County Board Meetings and to register the results of Elections.
3. PERFORMANCE, to conserve and respect the Tax Dollars of the Rock Island County Public, to fully implement the latest technology reducing costs while meeting voter and resident requirements for Licenses, Permits, Voter Registration, Election Execution and all other responsibilities of the Rock Island County Clerk.
When elected to the office of County Clerk, I promise to fulfill “T.A.P.” to the best of my abilities using the 43 years of Management experience with Deere & Co. from a local, national and global basis. I have also had the opportunity to cultivate many “Staff” positions in my 45 plus years of engaging people of many cultures and walks of life.
Rock Island County residents deserve to have a NEW approach to how the County Clerk’s office functions. After 60 plus years of control by one party’s “machine”, it is time to look at the position from a different perspective. By cultivating a well trained and equipped staff, we can make improvements that will benefit the citizens and the administration in Rock Island County.
I am dedicated to serving the people of Rock Island County. Thank you for your support. Contact me with any questions or opportunities to meet voters.
