Quincy Alderman Kyle Moore kicks off mayoral campaign

QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

The presidential election may be over, but now local candidates are fixing their eyes on the Quincy mayoral race. 

Kyle Moore announced his bid for mayor at the Elks Lodge in Quincy on Saturday morning.

Moore is in his first term as the third ward alderman and the owner of Moore's Floors in Quincy. 

Moore says his mayoral bid will focus on bringing businesses and jobs to Quincy.

"In order to attract new jobs in Quincy, in order to unify the community in a common vision on how we are going to go after head of household jobs we're going to need a new administration in city hall," said Moore. 

On the Democratic side, incumbent Mayor John Spring is expected to formally announce his bid for re-election on Monday.

Others who picked up mayoral candidacy petitions include former tea party leader Steve McQueen, John Wood Community College Trustee Reggie Coleman, and Quincy resident Roger Davis. 

The general election is in April.
