Houston Objects To McMenamin Criticism, Insists He Has Taken Hard Line With Unions


Springfield Mayor Mike Houston says every decision he’s made has been motivated by what’s best for the city… not what’s best for employee unions. 

 

Houston is responding to Alderman Joe McMenamin’s comments this week on 970 WMAY, accusing Houston and aldermen of conflicts of interest for taking campaign donations from unions and then voting on contracts negotiated by those unions. 

 

Houston says he did accept a donation from the firefighters’ local in his 2011 campaign… but says the contract his administration negotiated took a hard line, and provided only minimal pay raises over three years.
