BLOOMINGTON - A Bloomington mayoral candidate says he's doing something that no candidate has done before him.
Candidate Tari Renner greeted supporters at the grand opening of his campaign headquarters.
It's located in the 400 block of Main Street in downtown Bloomington. His campaign says it's the first time in city history that a mayoral candidate has opened a campaign headquarters.
Renner says the location represents how he would run office: open, visible and available.
"If people want information they can come by. They can stop in and talk to me, and it also makes us all more productive," he said. "Our volunteers can meet here. It's a place to gather. So I think for all kinds of reasons having a central location is good for us."
The headquarters are open weekday evenings from 4 - 7 p.m. and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on weekends.
Renner is running against John Hanson and Lex Green. The election is April 9th.
