Group With Ties To Alderman McMenamin Distributing Pro Residency Literature


A group calling itself “Springfield Citizens for Residency” is distributing literature asking city residents to support the upcoming referendum on a residency requirement for future city workers.

 

The group was established late last month, and has several ties to Alderman Joe McMenamin, the leading city council supporter of a residency requirement.

 

The group’s mailing address is the same as McMenamin’s law office, and McMenamin’s wife is listed as its treasurer.

 

A piece distributed by the group over the weekend says a residency rule would grow the city’s tax base, create demand for real estate, and, quote, “generate vested city employees.”
