Mayor Mike Houston has to fill two major vacancies in his administration… and a Springfield alderman is warning that filling one of those jobs may be tough.
Both Police Chief Robert Williams and Corporation Counsel Mark Cullen are stepping aside amid the backlash from the SPD file shredding scandal. Alderman Joe McMenamin says replacing Cullen may be tougher… because it’s a difficult job with long hours and challenging issues. And finding the right candidate may be complicated by the fact that Houston’s term ends in less than two years… and he has said he won’t seek a second term.
McMenamin made his comments during a live interview with 970 WMAY’s Greg Bishop.
