Former Taylorville Alderman Ray Koonce has officially announced he will be running for Mayor of Taylorville for the election being held in April. Koonce said he originally wasn’t planning on running, however there seemed to be a desire from the community for him to run.
Koonce said he wants to bring people in the community together to help solve the various issues Taylorville faces.
Koonce expressed he wants to be a leader, not a politician.
Koonce served as a city Alderman for four years in Ward I, and urged anybody to contact him should they have any questions or concerns about the city they wished to express.
