New Chamber President Says Government Spending Key For Economic Development

The incoming head of the Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce says government spending is an important part of economic development, suggesting he will continue the Chamber’s support of a bigger local investment in infrastructure.


Steward Sandstrom was named this week to replace Gary Plummer, who left the Chamber last year.


Under Plummer, the Chamber endorsed significantly higher spending on roads, sewers and sidewalks, even if it required higher taxes to make that happen.


Sandstrom says given the city’s challenges, especially a possible railroad consolidation project, a substantial government investment in infrastructure will be essential.
