Former Bethalto police Chief Alan Winslow is pleased to have the backing of Mayor Steve Bryant in his upcoming bid for Mayor.  Bryant recently announced he would not be seeking another term as Mayor of Bethalto, and said the former police chief would have his support in the election.  

Winslow says running for mayor is something he had not seriously considered until the mayor made his intentions known.

Winslow comments

Winslow says he has a great working relationship with the mayor, as well as a great friendship.  Winslow would like to continue many of the existing plans to upgrade streets and water resources if elected.  He would also like to pursue development of an actual park & recreation department.  Winslow is the first candidate to express an interest in running for the job.
