Message from R.C. 

It's an honor and a privilege - and very humbling - to be a small part of Normal's long tradition of outstanding community service. The primary responsibilities of a council member are to listen and learn. I know I can't make everyone happy with every vote, but I can and will work to ensure Normal's citizens and stakeholders are heard and respected.
