Running for office can be a bit daunting, especially if you’ve never done it before. But potential Springfield City Council candidates can get help tomorrow (12/6) from current council member, Doug Burlison. He plans to hold an informal Q & A session for anyone planning to try for a seat on council in the April municipal election. Burlison does not plan to run for re-election.
The session is set for 2:30 to 4:30 at the Midtown Carnegie Branch Library.
So far, four people have turned in their applications. Len Eagleburger and Kristi Fulnecky will run for Council Seat C, Bob Stephens will run to keep his mayoral seat and Justin Burnett and Buckley Van Hooser will try for the Zone Two council seat. According to Springfield city clerk, Brenda Cirtin, all of them except Burnett have been certified.
Filing opened December 2nd for five open council seats: mayor, General Seats C and D and Zones 2 and 3.
The deadline for submitting an application to the city clerk’s office is January 20, 2015.
