Another candidate is dipping his toe in the water… and is likely to dive into next year’s Springfield mayor’s race soon.
Sangamon County auditor Paul Palazzolo says he is “semi-officially” in the race for mayor. In an interview for the 970 WMAY News Feed, Palazzolo says the decision has virtually been made, it just hasn’t been formally announced yet.
And he says he expects to make the race, even if his friend and fellow Republican Mike Houston decides to seek another term in the officially non-partisan office. Palazzolo expects a formal announcement by mid-year.
