Mayor Houston Defends Minority Hiring Record, Ald. Simpson Says More Needs To Be Done

Springfield Mayor Mike Houston is defending his minority hiring record during his time in office.


Ward 2 Alderman Gail Simpson renewed her criticism of the city’s track record at Tuesday’s City Council meeting, pointing out that fewer than 9-percent of city employees are minorities.


But Houston says 17-percent of the workers hired since he took office are minorities… boosting the total in the overall workforce from seven-and-three-quarters percent in 2011 to eight-and-three-quarters percent now.
