MOLINE, Illinois -- The city's Alderman-At-Large, Stephanie Acri, is announcing her run for mayor.
Acri, who has served on the city council for five years, planned an open-house at Milltown Coffee to meet with residents and declare her candidacy. The meet-up was set to last from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. Tuesday, November 15, 2016.
"We are entering into a once-in-a-generation time period," Acri said. We must capitalize on every opportunity associated with the expansion of the rail service in Moline and the new I-74 bridge to make Moline one of the premiere cities in Illinois."
Acri says some of her top priorities are infrastructure, residential expansion, and to attract businesses to come to the area.
