On April 7th, 2009 - Decatur, IL will be having an important set of local elections. We have a Mayor to elect, along with 1 2-year council seat, and 3 4-year council seats.
If you want to know more about the basics on each candidate, check here for their bios. Seriously, take a minute and meet each of them (via their submitted info) at least. Chances are you don't know much about them, like me, and might as well begin with the basics.
Interesting/easy to do to find out where who is getting what money: Go here. Enter "Decatur", "Illinois", and then "2009", and leave the rest blank. 13 people or so will show up....many of them candidates. Check out who's getting what from whom.
Should be enough to keep you busy for a bit...put together a list of who you'll be voting for....and mark April 7th on your calendar!!
