Another candidate is definitely in the race for citywide office in Springfield in 2015.
Ward 1 Alderman Frank Edwards says he will be a candidate for treasurer next year. Edwards has talked about that possibility for months, but had made no formal campaign announcement yet.
Appearing live on the 970 WMAY News Feed, Edwards confirmed he is definitely running. Edwards… who served as mayor following Tim Davlin’s death in late 2010… says he has always been most interested in the financial end of city operations.
[Term limits prevent Edwards from seeking another term as alderman.]
