Holland to Announce Re-Election Bid Tuesday
Mayor Jim Holland will seek a third term in April's election, and he will make his candidacy official at Taste of Frankfort on Tuesday.
Jim Holland will be running for a third term as mayor and will announce his candidacy Tuesday at his Taste of Frankfort campaign fundraiser Tuesday, Sept. 25, at CD & ME, the mayor said in a press release Sunday.
Frankfort's mayoral election is April 9, and Tuesday is the first day potential candidates can circulate petitions. Three Village Board of Trustee seats—Todd Morgan's, Dick Trevarthan's and Doug Walker's—also will be up for election in April, as well as the office of village clerk, which is currently held by Bob Kennedy.
In his release, Holland outlined his reasons for re-election:
- Continue restrained spending policy for the village that will lead to paying off the entirety of Frankfort's bonded debt. The village board already paid off a series of bonds last year.
- Continue improving the village's building standards.
- See the completion of the U.S. Route 30 widening project, as well as improve other major village roadways.
"The trustees and I understand that the people of our community make Frankfort the great village that it is," Holland stated in the release. "We are stewards of their tax money, and we know that it is our responsibility to find the most economical ways to provide high quality planning, police protection, street maintenance and other services for the people."
The Taste of Frankfort campaign fundraiser is open to the public and costs $30.
