Taylorville has a new mayor, and after several members of the community stepped up and entered the race, Bruce Barry prevailed and won the election. Barry is ready to get to work, and wants to continue to clean up the town and help fight the drug problem the area is dealing with.
Barry says he feels great about the results, and is ready to help bring change to Taylorville. Barry was also excited about the results of the local School Tax Referendum, and says both results will help move the city in a positive direction.
Barry's planning on meeting with city leaders in the next few weeks to discuss how to solve some of the various issues the town is facing.
