"Local government is largely responsible for shaping our community. As a County Board Member, I help make decisions that improve my neighborhood, my home town, and my county. A career in public service has afforded me an active role in providing a safe, healthy community in which to live and raise a family."
- Thomas O'Neill III, 15 years, Peoria County Board Chairman
"I feel public service is important because it is an opportunity to be part of a working class that is helping to shape issues affecting the health and welfare of our community and our world for the present as well as future generations."
- Virginia Pearl, 23 years, County Administration
"I enjoy living in Peoria County because I love having all the accommodations of a major city with a small town feel."
- Emily Connors, 4 years, Health Department
"I believe that Peoria County has an exceptional Wellness Benefit and I would encourage all employees and dependants on the County Health Insurance to take advantage of it. Using this benefit can increase the chances of determining health problems or risks in the early stages. Identifying these problems or risks early not only benefits the individual in regards to prognosis, treatment, and cost, but also minimizes expenditures to the health plan, which benefits all participants of the health plan."
- Doug Gaa, 15 years, Peoria County Sheriff's Office
