Peoria businessman Jason Beck has announced his candidacy for mayor.
Running against City Councilperson Bridget Binsbacher, Beck recently held a kickoff party for his run with 270 constituents.
“One of my reasonings for running for mayor is I want to change the way Peoria does business,” he said.
The owner of the body armor company Tyr Tactical, Beck said he was asked by several people across the city to run for mayor.
