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 Victor Pop. Pop is a long-time Taylorville resident, and feels he is the best candidate to move Taylorville forward.
Each candidate had the chance to address potential voters at the Taylorville Mayoral Forum, where Pop shared his background with the city, and credited his teachers for his education.
Pop said something that Taylorville needs is more jobs. He discussed how Taylorville has seen many factories shut down over the years, without any new ones to replace them.
If elected, Pop wants to introduce more TIF districts in town. He said these districts are critical to help the city bring in business, and be able to rebuild the town.
