One of the Springfield aldermanic races next spring could have a familiar feel.
As 970 WMAY News was the first to report, Maldaner’s Restaurant owner Michael Higgins is seeking a rematch against Ward 7 Alderman Joe McMenamin.
McMenamin beat Higgins and another challenger in a three-way race in 2011.
Higgins plans a formal campaign announcement in September. McMenamin is also expected to seek re-election next year.
