BLOOMINGTON, Ill. (WMBD) — Ahead of the April 6, 2021 election, Derek Mead is announcing his candidacy for Bloomington City Council Ward 3.
Mead is a lifelong resident of McLean County and has lived in Ward 3 for the past eight years.
“Being firmly ingrained in this community has given me a strong passion for making positive change. As a father, I want to work hard to make Bloomington a better place for all children to enjoy a prosperous future,” Mead stated in a press release.
Mead said as a business man, he has a goal to see businesses grow and flourish.
“It is my belief that government should work for the people it represents, not its own self-interests.
