Springfield ICON has announced their endorsements for the upcoming municipal election. ICON (Inner City Older Neighborhoods) based their decision on both written responses to their questionnaire, as well as their candidate forums held last month.

Identifying the issues facing Springfield and having plans to address them were key for endorsements. But ICON Chair Carol Kneedler said that having a positive outlook on these issues was important as well. Springfield does have its problems; but overemphasizing them is a problem in its own right.

The candidates that were endorsed are:

Mayor – Jim Langfelder (incumbent)

Clerk – Rianne Hawkins

Treasurer – Misty Buscher (incumbent)

Ward 1 – T. Ray McJunkins

Ward 2 – Gail Simpson

Ward 3 – Doris Turner (incumbent)

Ward 4 – John Fulgenzi (incumbent)

Ward 5 – Andrew Proctor (incumbent)

Ward 6 – Kristin DiCenso (incumbent)

Ward 7 – Joe McMenamin (incumbent)

Ward 8 – Erin Conley

Ward 9 – Jim Donelan (incumbent)

Ward 10 – Robert Patino
