Incumbent hopes to keep strengthening community

&nbsp;HOOPESTON -- This mayoral incumbent hopes to keep strengthening the community.<br>&nbsp;
HOOPESTON -- Thursday we met 26-year old, Jeramy Dobkins, running for mayor. Friday, we meet his opponent and the incumbent, Bill Crusinberry. This isn't his first election. He's been mayor the past four years. He says he got into local politics to help his town.

Crusinberry says his focus will be on development. He thinks Hoopeston has been growing. There have been upgrades to the medical center and new businesses opening their doors.

Crusinberry says, the past five years, businesses have pumped in more than $30-million to the community. If re-elected, he wants to work hard to keep it that way.

Crusinberry is a life-long resident. He used to be a small business owner, too, so that gives him a better understanding of what the town has to deal with.

Both candidates square off in a debate next week. They meet Monday at 7 pm at the Hoopeston American Legion.
