Early voting is available but the official day to vote for the school tax referendum as well as any city official positions is April 4th. Tim Calvert is running for the open position of city mayor after Mayor Brotherton steps down. Calvert thinks his experience with Eagles, writing grants to generate money, and being a part of the community for years will help his stake in running.
Calvert said some of the things he is focused on within Taylorville include drug usage, improve the city's curb appeal, and the school tax referendum.
Calvert said he wants to continue to promote the city to be a great place to live, and he thinks with what the city is beginning to set up, it will have a lot to offer incoming residents and businesses.
Calvert appeared on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
