Terry D’Arcy, 2005-06 CATA Chairman and dealer principal at D’Arcy Chevrolet Buick Cadillac in Morris, D’Arcy Hyundai and D’Arcy Buick GMC in Joliet, has announced plans to run for mayor of Joliet next spring.
D’Arcy said that he's running for mayor because at 66 years old, he has the time necessary to devote his attention to being mayor of Joliet and he wants to give back to the city.
"I just want to help people," D'Arcy told reporters at a recent news conference.
D'Arcy said he called current Joliet Mayor O'Dekirk and notified him of his decision to run against him in next year's mayoral race for the third largest Illinois city and the county seat of Will County.
"I talked to the mayor and wished him well. I respect him," D'Arcy said of O'Dekirk.
He said that D'Arcy Motors now about 225 total employees between all its locations, and he's in the process of building a new $20 million building on his Essington Road property.
