Godfrey Mayor Mike McCormick says the death of 87-year-old Godfrey Trustee and realtor Eldon "Twirp" Williams was the one moment that defined 2018 in the village. Williams was found dead in his car, the victim of a gunshot wound in October. His alleged killer is in custody, facing numerous charges.
McCormick says in Williams' absence, attorney and businessman Ben Allen was picked to fill out the remainder of Williams' term.

Allen has plans to run for election in the spring. It will be a big field, with talk of at least five candidates running for three available positions.
