BLOOMINGTON– Saying he’s proud of his many accomplishments including the creation of the Public Safety and Community Relations Board, the West Market Street Mural and the myBloomington app Ward 7 Alderman Scott Black announced Friday that he will not be seeking re-election in 2021.
By making his election intentions known now, Black, who recently got married, says in a statement he can now focus on completing the work for critical issues in his ward: emerging from Covid safely and quickly without leaving behind residents or our vibrant local business community, securing funding for O’Neil Pool’s long overdue renovation, and modernizing the Connect Transit intergovernmental agreement.
Black was first elected to the Bloomington City Council in 2013 and reelected in 2017 and once his term is completed he plans to continue his involvement in the community.
