Springfield City Treasurer Jim Langfelder has announced he will run for Springfield mayor next year. The son of former mayor Ossie Langfelder says the theme of his campaign is simple:
"You should do what's best for the city. That's what it's all about. That's how I ran the treasurer's office, to do what's in the best interest, protecting city funds, putting in safeguards and changing the way we do business in the treasuer's office. And if you do that, everything else takes care of itself," Langfelder said.
