Springfield aldermen will finally get to have their say on an administrative appointment made by Mayor Mike Houston… two years ago.
CWLP official Bob Braasch appeared before the City Council committee of the whole Tuesday night ahead of a final confirmation vote next week.
Houston’s longtime friend and former aide told aldermen that he’s been working to make the utility more efficient in the two years since he received the interim appointment.
Houston delayed the confirmation vote for months out of fear that aldermen would reject it.
But only Ward 2’s Gail Simpson has come out publicly in opposition to the appointment.
