A Springfield alderman has announced that he will not seek re-election next year.
Ward 4 Alderman John Fulgenzi has decided not to seek a third term. In addition to serving on the City Council since 2015, Fulgenzi was previously a Sangamon County Board member for ten years. During his time in office, Fulgenzi was an early supporter of a local smoking ban in public establishments, and spearheaded the merger of the Springfield and Sangamon County health departments. He also led the charge to create the Peoria Road/Route 66 TIF district.
Fulgenzi says it’s been an honor to be involved in public service. He continues to own and operate Fulgenzi’s Pizza and Pasta on Sangamon Avenue.
