An Early Candidate for Mayor?

Although the election is a year-and-a-half away, one elected official says he is interested in the mayor’s office.  Sangamon County Auditor Paul Palazzolo says he may very well toss his hat into the ring.

“From fiscal responsibility experience to communications experience, I believe I could make a positive difference in the city” says Palazzolo.

Appearing live Saturday on the Weekend Newswatch, Palazzolo says it isn’t official but he is seriously exploring the possibility of running.  Incumbent Mayor Mike Houston ran on the understanding he would only serve one term, but has been holding fundraisers as of late.
