A Springfield alderman says a special City Council meeting Tuesday will focus not only on what the former city attorney told aldermen about the police department file shredding scandal… but also about what Mayor Mike Houston didn’t say.
Appearing live on the 970 WMAY News Feed, Alderman Frank Edwards said that he wants to release the minutes and audio recordings of a May executive session where the controversy was discussed. Edwards contends those records will show that Mayor Mike Houston was asked whether any objections were raised before the documents were shredded… and that Houston did not disclose the concerns that had been brought up within the police department.
Former corporation counsel Mark Cullen has resigned amid the latest revelations about the scandal, but Edwards says he’s not the only one that should be held accountable. That special meeting is set for 5:30pm Tuesday in the City Council chambers.
