Harris announces candidacy
Beardstown City Council Alderman Tim Harris has announced his candidacy for mayor in the April 2017 city election.
Harris, who was elected as an alderman in ward two in 2015 and currently serves on six committees, hopes to step in to the city’s top position to help meet the needs of the community.
“After being on the city council, I could see the importance of the office of mayor,” Harris said. “It’s not a job to be taken lightly. It can affect the lives and futures of many people.”
