Mayer files petitions for re-election

Peoria County Board member Allen Mayer hopes to retain his sixth district seat. The Peoria Democrat filed his nominating petitions for re-election Monday.

Mayer says the county has held the line on the county’s property tax rate, maintained an excellent bond rating and balanced county budgets in his time on the board. Mayer serves as Chairman of the County Board’s Ways and Means and Rules committees, and is a member of the Finance and Executive Committees.

He was first elected to the board in 2004. The primary election will be held on March 18th and the general election is November 4th.
