Springfield alderman Cory Jobe says he isn’t worried about stepping on toes as he considers a run for mayor next year.
Jobe is a Republican…as are two already-announced candidates for mayor, incumbent Mike Houston and Sangamon County Auditor Paul Palazzolo.
Jobe says he’s not concerned about party affiliations, and if he runs, he hopes to attract support from Republicans, Democrats and independents alike.
Jobe notes his closest ally on the City Council is Ward 3’s Doris Turner… who is also the county Democratic chairman.
Jobe plans to announce his political plans next month, right after the Illinois State Fair.
