CityLink Thank Mayor Jim Ardis for His Years of Service to the City of Peoria
Back in March, GPMTD Board of Trustees Chair Art Bell and CityLink General Manager Doug Roelfs met with current Peoria Mayor Jim Ardis to thank him for his many years of public service to the City of Peoria. Mayor Ardis has been mayor since 2005, serving more consecutive terms than any other mayor in the city’s history. He announced in October 2020 that he was not seeking re-election for a 5th consecutive term.
Mayor Ardis has long been a proponent and advocate for public transportation during his tenure as mayor. He has supported CityLink and the other services provided by GPMTD over the years. During their recent meeting, Trustee Bell presented Mayor Ardis with a commemorative CityLink clock, which was inscribed with the words:
The Greater Peoria Mass Transit District thanks Mayor Ardis for his distinguished service to Peoria and commitment to the importance of public transportation.
Mayor Ardis’ current term as mayor ends on May 2, 2021. CityLink extends its thanks to Mayor Ardis for his service to the City of Peoria, and wishes him the best on his future endeavors.
