To The Herald-Whig:
I urge all citizens of Adams County to vote for Ryan Niekamp for the position of Adams County clerk. Ryan is the standard by which a public servant should be measured against.
He is the type of public servant that Adams County deserves. His honesty, integrity, dedication and commitment to the citizens of this great county are unmatched. In my position as the first assistant state’s attorney of Adams County, I have worked closely with Ryan during his time on the Adams County Board, during his tenure as the previous chairman of the Legislative and Judicial Committee of Adams County, and recently as the current Adams County Clerk.
There is no one who is more qualified for the position that Ryan currently holds, and no one who is more dedicated to serving the citizens of Adams County.
During Ryan’s time on the Adams County Board, Ryan served his constituents well by ensuring that their voices were heard and their needs met. Ryan’s leadership as chairman of the Legislative and Judicial Committee insured that Adams County was always in compliance with the most up-to-date legislative changes mandated by the state of Illinois.
Under Ryan’s leadership, the Legislative and Judicial Committee always dealt with issues in an efficient, effective and timely manner. Not only was Ryan mindful of the needs of his constituents, but he was always mindful of the needs and well-being of the employees of Adams County as well. He did this all with a watchful eye, holding true to his conservative fiscal values. In doing so, Ryan did all this in a manner of not only professionalism, but sincerity.
If all politicians adhered to the standards that Ryan does, then our country would be a much better place. Ryan is a genuine person who voters can believe, trust and rely on. I am proud to be able to work beside Ryan for the citizens of Adams County, but I am even more honored to call him my friend.
