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 Rob Heberling. Heberling is currently an Alderman on the Taylorville City Council, a position he’s held for the past eight years, and believes the work he’s done during that time is why he should be elected mayor.
Each candidate had the chance to address potential voters at the Taylorville Mayoral Forum, where Heberling said he has deep roots in the community, and understands that he works for Taylorville, and not himself.
Heberling discussed some of the improvements the constituents he represents as well as the city itself has seen, including improvements made to the city’s storm sewer lines.
Heberling said the number one concern he hears about from citizens is the physical condition of the city. He says if elected, he will continue the city’s efforts to clean up the city.
