After a week of back-and-forth fingerpointing, a Springfield alderman now admits that Mayor Mike Houston is correct.
Frank Edwards had accused the mayor of failing to answer a direct question about whether anyone in the police department had objected prior to the destruction of internal affairs files.
Houston says he was never asked that question during a May executive session.
Edwards now confirms that Houston has it right.
But Edwards says aldermen shouldn’t be faulted for not asking all the right questions, because the city isn’t giving them enough information to know which questions to ask.
