Braasch Confirmation Vote Could Open Old Wounds

Some Springfield aldermen say they still have the same concerns today that they had two years ago, when Mayor Mike Houston first appointed a longtime friend and former aide to a $95,000-a-year job at City Water Light and Power.


Houston did not submit the appointment of Bob Braasch for a City Council vote then, because he said he did not have the votes to get it approved. But the nomination is now on the Council’s agenda… and Alderman Frank Edwards says Houston may have re-opened a can of worms.


Appearing live on 970 WMAY’s “Bishop On Air,” Edwards says the vote on the high-paying job is likely to reignite concerns over spending and the financial health of the utility.
