Taylor wins another term as Rockwell mayor

Mayor

ROCKWELL — Beau Taylor, incumbent mayor of Rockwell, won Tuesday’s election and will serve another two-year term.

Taylor won against challenger and board member Chris Stiller, who has been an alderman for six years. Taylor received 153 votes, or 67.11%. That’s compared to Stiller’s 75 votes, or 32,89%.

In a phone interview with the Post, Taylor said he was excited about the victory but tired, too, because of a long day at the polls.

“I am very pleased with the outcome,” he said. “I’m thankful that people in the town of Rockwell supported me that much in votes and had that much faith in me.”

Taylor said that he would like to continue his work on the police station, and to see the Alexander Glen Subdivision to completion.

“Those are my two main goals for our town,” he said. “The development will be a big plus for the town of Rockwell. When completely done, there will be 104 houses in the development, which will be a big plus for the town.”

Stiller didn’t return a request for comment by deadline Tuesday.

This year, Taylor said, he didn’t need to put out as many signs as past years, but that he did make sure to let citizens know “that I care and I wanted them to get out and vote.”

Taylor has served the town of Rockwell for 18 years.

He ran on a platform of being available to citizens and developing local business.

With five open slots and five people running, Chris Cranford, Chuck Bowman, Lizz Johnson, Timothy Justin Crews and Stephenie Walker received terms on the town board.
