Alderman Blasts City's Minority Hiring Numbers


Despite Mayor Mike Houston’s pledge to improve diversity in city government hiring, a Springfield alderman says the numbers remain dismal, and unacceptable. 

 

Alderman Gail Simpson says fewer than eight-percent of city employees are minorities… and the percentage of minority supervisors is less than three-percent.  Both percentages are well below the ratio of minorities in the city’s population as a whole. 

 

Houston was absent from Tuesday’s City Council meeting, but Simpson vows to raise the issue with him when he returns.
