Quincy Mayor John Spring announces re-election bid

Posted: Updated:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Quincy Mayor John Spring said his vision for the city is not complete in announcing his bid for a third term Monday.

Spring formally announced that he would run for his third term as Mayor at Washington Perk in Quincy.

"My vision is not complete yet and that is why today I am announcing my intent to be your mayor again," Spring said.

Spring touted the growth of downtown Quincy, saying that 55 new businesses have opened in that section of the city. But he said there is still more work to be done to bring more jobs and business to the city.

"We need to keep expanding business, transportation and schools," Spring said.

If re-elected, Spring says it would be his final term as Mayor of Quincy.

Quincy Alderman Kyle Moore kicked off his campaign Saturday. Others that have taken out petitions include Republicans Steve McQueen and Reggie Coleman, and Roger Davis, who is running as an Independent.

Coming up on WGEM News at Five and Six, we'll bring you more from Spring's campaign kickoff.
