Springfield's Mayor Wants Another Term
Springfield mayor Mike Houston will seek another term. Houston made the announcement earlier this morning. He says he has righted the ship when it comes to city finances.
Houston is expected to face opposition.
County Auditor Paul Palazzolo and City Treasuer Jim Langfielder have indicated they will run for the office as well.
Houston admits he broke a pledge to only serve one term. He made that during the last campaign. But he says some of his projects have taken longer than anticipated to accomplish.
