Springfield aldermen want to know why some constituent e-mails that were intended for them were instead routed through the mayor’s office.
The messages in question were generated through a contact form on the city’s website. Even though messages could be designated to a specific alderman, they were sent first to the mayor’s communications director Nathan Mihelich.
Mihelich then forwarded the messages on to aldermen. Mayor Mike Houston says he was unaware of the situation… even though some aldermen say they’ve complained about it for months.
