April 4th is fast approaching and that means that local elections are right around the corner. One of the candidates running for Taylorville Mayor is Bruce Barry. Barry feels his experience on the School Board and as President of the Taylorville Sanitary district make him the best candidate in the election.
Each candidate had the chance to address potential voters at the Taylorville Mayoral Forum, where Barry gave a background on his experience in the city.
Barry wants to change the way the city funds civic and club organization events. Barry says he’s already received pledges for the city to use for these events rather than tax dollars.
Barry also wants the city government to become more proactive in growing the city and become more transparent with city organizations about where their funding comes from.
