Springer for Sheriff — An Endorsement by Paul Gorski


Springer for Sheriff — An Endorsement by Paul Gorski

March 16, 2014
 
Long-time Democrat Paul Gorski announced today his endorsement of Democrat Bob Springer for Winnebago County Sheriff.

“Bob Springer is the clear choice for Democratic voters this Tuesday. Springer has the strongest Democratic credentials of any Democrat on the ballot, but more importantly, he has the most experience and best prepared to be our next sheriff. His long history of leadership in in various law enforcement roles will allow him to hit the floor running on his first day as sheriff. The choice is clear: vote for Bob Springer for Winnebago County Sheriff this Tuesday and again this fall.”
 
Paul Gorski currently serves a Cherry Valley Township Trustee, and is a former county board member, former Recording Secretary for the Winnebago County Democratic Party, and current Democratic Party Precinct Committeeman.

Local radio favorites Doug McDuff and Ken DeCoster released following NTA programming changes

WIFR.com and The Rock River Times report that local radio greats Doug McDuff and Ken DeCoster were let go from NTA radio following station programming changes.

I am extremely disappointed in the programming changes. 

Rockford has lost a great local news source in NTA. DeCoster worked hard to bring important, local breaking news to our attention when it happened. You can't tell me people didn't appreciate local news as it happens. Also, what will happen to NTA's coverage of local sports?
 

While I didn't always agree with the guests and callers on NTA talk shows, McDuff and the other hosts provided an important community service by promoting valuable discussions on local issues.

I wish Ken DeCoster and Doug McDuff well and hope they find job opportunities in our local community.
