The Peoria City Council election of 2015 was held on April 7, 2015. The five At-Large seats on the 10-member Peoria city council were up for election. Six candidates appeared on the ballot. All five incumbent councilmen were re-elected: Beth Akeson, Ryan Spain, Eric Turner, Chuck Weaver, and Beth Jensen (who was appointed to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Councilman Gary Sandberg). The lone challenger, Katherine Coyle, Chairwoman of the Peoria County Republican Party, was not elected.
The Mayor, who is elected separately, presides over the Council.
