Last week the Quad Cities Chamber brought together over 100 Chamber members and concerned citizens to hear from the mayoral candidates of the City of Moline and City of Rock Island. Jim Mertens moderated the forum, asking questions that pertained to regional issues involving business growth and economic climate. WQAD helped us capture the program through Facebook Live, broadcasting the responses from Andy Rowe, Mike Thoms, Steve Tollenaer of Rock Island, and Stephanie Acri and Scott Raes of Moline. Terry Brooks, a candidate for Rock Island was unable to make it to the event, we caught up with him after the program to record his views on the questions asked during the forum.
For those that could not make it to the event, we wanted to share the videos to provide the opportunity for you to become fully informed of all the candidates and their views when you go to the polls on April 4.
