Members of Springfield ICON said goodbye to Ward 6 Alderman Cory Jobe at Tuesday night’s City Council meeting.


Carol Kneedler, ICON Chair, and member of the Iles Park Neighborhood Association thanked Cory for his work for neighborhood and and his willingness to take the lead for positive change for all our city, noting Cory’s efforts to attract new businesses to the MacArthur Boulevard area when he was President of that Neighborhood Association and for the newly  revitalized Iles Park Place.

Polly Poskin, President of Harvard Park Neighborhood Association, and Sharon Riffey, Secretary of the Historic Westside Neighborhood Association, also spoke, thanking Cory for his tireless and innovative work in bringing people together and proposing solutions.

ICON and residents of Ward 6 will miss his understanding of economic development and of the issues facing older neighborhoods.
