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 Ray Koonce. Koonce previously served as Taylorville City Alderman from 2011 to 2015, and feels that his experience with the city makes him the best candidate for Mayor.
Each candidate had the chance to address potential voters at the Taylorville Mayoral Forum, where Koonce shared his background with the city and various other organizations.
Koonce discussed his history in the city government, and some of the issues he had a hand in fixing in the past.
If elected, Koonce wants to focus on several key areas, including growing the economy, and correcting some of the issues the city is facing. He also said he wants to improve the ability for voters to bring thoughts and concerns to the Mayor’s office.
