Springfield's Newest Council Members To Be Sworn In
The city of Springfield will honor its four outgoing council members during a reception this afternoon.
The public is invited to the event, which will include Doug Burlison, Mike Carroll, Cindy Rushefsky and Jerry Compton.
Compton was the only incumbent to seek re-election last Tuesday, but was unseated by Mike Schilling. Burilson, Carroll and Rushefsky did not seek another term, and will be succeeded by Justin Burnett, Kristi Fulnecky, and Ken McClure.
Additionally, council is reviewing applicants to fill the Zone 1 vacancy left by Jeff Seifried.
Today’s reception begins at 4:30 p.m. in the Busch Municipal Building. The new council members will then be sworn in as part of tonight’s regular meeting, scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall.
