Houston Seeks Another Term

Houston Seeks Another Term

It doesn’t take much reading between the lines to guess that Springfield Mayor Mike Houston is seeking another term.

An e-mail quotes Houston as saying, “With so many evolving projects, there’s too high of an investment to get off course or to go backwards.  Springfield can’t afford to make the mistakes again I’ve worked so hard to correct.” That statement is dated today.

The e-mail, from the Houston for Mayor committee, informs us of a campaign announcement at 10-30 this morning at Municipal Center West.

The only announced candidate is Paul Palazzolo, the Sangamon County auditor.
