Troxell Broker Donated Thousands to Mayor Houston Before Renewing Lucrative Deal With City


Springfield Mayor Mike Houston has received thousands of dollars in campaign donations from top officials with the company that just saw its lucrative no-bid contract with the city renewed.

 

As 970 WMAY News first reported, Al Klunick of R.W. Troxell has donated 35-hundred dollars to Houston since Houston ran for mayor in 2011… another top Troxell executive also donated to Houston.

 

Aldermen voted 9-to-1 this week to renew the city’s deal with Troxell to broker insurance coverage for City Water Light and Power facilities.

 

The only “no” vote came from Alderman Joe McMenamin, who says city officials should not take contributions from businesses or unions who have contracts going before the City Council.
