MOUNT ZION – Incumbent Mount Zion Mayor Don Robinson lost in his quest for a fourth term. Challenger Mark Wells, a member of the village board, defeated Robinson by a margin of 434-285 with all five precincts reporting.

Robinson made the decision to seek an additional term a couple of weeks into the filing period for office after no one had yet declared an interest in running. Robinson, a Decatur native, became involved in village government shortly after moving to Mount Zion about 20 years ago. He served as trustee for eight years prior to his 12-year tenure as mayor.

Wells was born and raised on a farm in the Mount Zion School District. He graduated from Mount Zion High School and studied agribusiness at Illinois State University. He retired from UPS in 2009 after 25 years.

Wells has served on the Mount Zion Board of Trustees for two years and was a former school board member.
