Jim Ardis Re-election Announcement
Recent speculation and posturing over the 2013 mayoral election has produced an outpouring of calls and messages of support in the past 48 hours.
Peorians expressed their desire to continue the direction the council and I have established – a direction based on growing jobs and the economy, balanced budgets, stronger, safer neighborhoods, and holding the line on property taxes.
Therefore, this afternoon I announced my intention to run for re-election to keep Peoria on the right track and work with the council and public to make this city even better for the future.
I plan a formal announcement after the November elections.
Thanks to all those Peorians who reached out—I will continue to work hard to earn your support every day.
