One of the city positions that will change with this year's local election will be the City Clerk's office. The reigning City Clerk, Pam Peabody, has been in office for more than 20 years, and is retiring this year causing one more open spot that will need to be filled that could shake up the city government. Buz Besson, is running for the open position and believes his experience in this community could bring stability for the future of the city.
Besson said he decided to run because of the lack of instability that's possible in the city government because of all of the potential new faces.
Besson has been a major part of the community and organizations that give back including Kiwanis, the Masonic Lodge and the Shiners. But his experience working and developing systems with the Taylorville Police Department is something he is most proud of.
Besson appeared on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
