Local elections are approaching quickly, and many Taylorville citizens and natives are stepping up, ready to fill the position Mayor Greg Brotherton is leaving. One of those candidates is former City Alderman Ray Koonce. Koonce was on the city council for four years, and noticed some of the issues through his ward that he wants to focus on. Koonce said he wants to help fix the economy in Taylorville and help support the process of bringing in new business to help the city continue to grow.
Koonce also mentioned the upcoming tax referendum the citizens of Taylorville will need to vote on. He said this referendum needs to be passed to not only help the students, but to help the city's economy grow and stay positive.
Koonce appeared on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
