Community leader Jack Brown is named Taylorville Energy Center’s community representative; office is planned
April 23, 2009
When a major project such as the Taylorville Energy Center (TEC) begins to take shape, local citizens always have important questions to ask. Christian County Generation, LLC, the developer of TEC, believes the best way to be sure those questions are asked and answered is to have someone from the community on the ground to represent Tenaska and to aid communication.
Former Taylorville City Councilman Jack Brown is Tenaska’s community representative for the Taylorville Energy Center. He is on the job now, and an office will open in coming weeks at 215 S. Washington St., on the Taylorville town square.
Brown and the town square office will help provide Taylorville and Christian County residents easy access to information about TEC. Until the office is ready, Brown may be reached at (217) 824-8873, by e-mail at email@example.com or through www.cleancoalillinois.com.
“Tenaska is committed to open, two-way communication with the businesses and residents of the Taylorville region,” said Bill Braudt, business development representative for TEC.
Brown will complete his term on the Taylorville City Council in May. His community credentials are strong. He was the coordinator of economic development for Taylorville and Christian County for three years. Previously, he had an honored 34-year career as a teacher, high school principal and district administrator.
Brown is or has been a member of the Oak Hill Cemetery Board of Managers, Lincoln Land Community College Coordinator, St. Vincent’s Hospital Board of Trustees, Masonic Lodge, Shrine, Lions Club, United Way, Scouting, United Methodist Men’s activities and other church and community organizations and events.
Brown, an Army veteran, has earned degrees in education from Southeast Missouri State University and the University of Missouri. He has done additional graduate study at the University of Illinois.
