Pro-Residency Group To Distribute 40,000 Flyers


A group formed to push for passage of a referendum on next month’s ballot plans to distribute 40,000 flyers… urging Springfield voters to support the return of a residency rule for city workers.

Springfield Citizens for Residency is also trying to refute some of the claims from those who oppose that non-binding referendum.  Alderman Joe McMenamin and other members of the group say that Mayor Mike Houston is wrong when he claims the city would have to make costly concessions to unions in order to get them to accept a new residency requirement. 

 

Regardless of the outcome of the referendum, the final say on residency is up to Springfield aldermen.
