ROCK ISLAND, Ill. - Rock Island Mayor Dennis Pauley's decision not to seek another term in office opened the door for someone new to take the job.
Four men are now trying to walk through that door.
They are former Rock Island Alderman Terry Brooks, current Rock Island Alderman Stephen Tollenaer, entrepreneur and former Renaissance Rock Island President Mike Thoms as well as former congressional aide Andy Rowe.
