Councilman At-Large, City of Peoria
I am Kiran Velpula, your at-large councilman for the City of Peoria. I am the first Indian to be seated on the City Council in the 186 years since the incorporation of Peoria.
I am an independent voice for Peoria, will listen to all sides, and make decisions based on what's best for Peoria.
I am passionate about talent development in Peoria and am working with local educational institutions to develop a talent pool. I am leading efforts to develop a biotech corridor, and I am committed to make Peoria a biotech destination.
This includes integrating with the local medical health care system and advocating for public safety, infrastructure improvements, and small business development.
I am the cheerleader for Peoria, and let us make Peoria, the workforce capital of the Midwest.
