A Springfield alderman says his mayoral ambitions may depend on whether Mayor Mike Houston seeks another term.
Alderman Cory Jobe says he will consider many factors before deciding whether to run for mayor in 2015, including the issues in the race and the ability to raise the money needed for a campaign. But appearing live on 970 WMAY, Jobe said his decision might be impacted by whether Houston runs for re-election. Jobe says he respects Houston and would factor that into his final decision.
At least two other candidates… Jim Langfelder and Paul Palazzolo… have indicated they intend to run for mayor next year.
