ICON’s Aldermanic Forum provided an opportunity for Springfield residents and ICON members to get to know Aldermanic Candidates for the City of Springfield and to evaluate candidate positions on issues of importance to older neighborhoods.

Due to the large field of candidates and the time constraints of such a public forum, the issues, questions and process were pre-defined:

Aldermanic candidates were provided a list of issues prepared by the members of ICON and partner organizations. A moderator introduced each issue, and representatives from member and partner organizations posed 11 questions to the candidates. Candidates voted, and then candidates had an opportunity to briefly explain their position.

A candidate report card will be published summarizing the positions of candidates along with candidate biographies and their vision for Springfield.

You can make a difference – get educated, get involved – all it takes is 6 votes!

The forum was hosted by:

Springfield SDAT MacArthur Boulevard Association
