The End of an Era

Doc491d069217a4c916832454Mayor of Pontiac, Illinois, Scott McCoy, will not be seeking a second term.

As a small-business owner, I am the business,” he said. “I have a lot of flexibility owning my own business, but with the massive time I’ve put in [as Mayor] with the very important and demanding situations this year, it has severely impacted my business. And I have an obligation to my employees and my family.


I’ve never considered myself a politician. And all I see are politicians working hard to keep their jobs instead of doing their jobs. So, I’ll give up my job in order to be aggressive and do my job. It’s not about me, it’s about Pontiac and saving this prison!

Read the entire article.  Scott, the perks of having my brother as Mayor (that were never realized, honestly) will be sorely missed.  Glad to see you focus on what's important in your life and for our hometown.
