Springfield Aldermen Clash Over Questions of Union Influence at City Hall


Springfield aldermen are still squabbling about political support from labor unions… and whether it automatically constitutes a conflict of interest.

 

Ward 7’s Joe McMenamin said last week that his fellow aldermen, and Mayor Mike Houston, have a conflict because they are voting on contracts negotiated by the same unions who have given campaign cash to them.

 

But Ward 6 Alderman Cory Jobe says the unions are not getting any special deals.

 

Jobe says he is not beholden to anyone.

 

McMenamin has encouraged candidates to step forward to challenge sitting aldermen in next year’s elections… but Jobe says some aldermen may also be encouraging people to come forward and take on McMenamin in 2015.
