Alderman McMenamin Says Council Lacks Leadership and Focus on Pension Crisis

Springfield Alderman Joe McMenamin is still on the offensive against Mayor Mike Houston and his City Council colleagues, accusing them of a lack of leadership and a lack of action in dealing with the city’s pension crisis.


Springfield has a $230 million unfunded liability in police and fire pensions.


McMenamin says Houston should have taken a get-tough approach with employee unions to help lower that pension liability… and says aldermen should have held the mayor’s feet to the fire.


And McMenamin repeated his contention that the pension crisis won’t get any better unless voters install a new mayor and a number of new aldermen in the 2015 elections.
