It’s still days before this year’s primary… and next year’s campaign season is already getting started.
Springfield city treasurer Jim Langfelder is announcing his intentions to run for mayor next spring.
Langfelder’s interest in such a campaign had been rumored for months.
Term limits prevent him from seeking another term as treasurer.
Langfelder is the son of former mayor Ossie Langfelder.
The State Journal-Register reports he will informally kick off his campaign by marching with a contingent in Saturday’s St. Patrick’s Day parade downtown, wearing shirts that say “Langfelder 2015.”
