Marion mayor seeking 14th term

MARION - The mayor of a southern Illinois city who's been in office for more than 50 years has announced his intention to seek a 14th term next year.

Marion Mayor Bob Butler will face challenges from Charles Montgomery and Ann Colborn in the April 7, 2015 mayoral election.  Butler has held the office since 1963.

However, Colborn believes that it's time for a fresh face in the office, stating that "times are changing, and I think we're going to have to change with the times."
