Jerry Compton is Springfield City Council’s only incumbent on the April 7 ballot. KSMU’s Theresa Bettmann spoke with the Zone 3 councilman and his challenger, Mike Schilling, to learn more on their goals for the city.
Compton was appointed to Springfield City Council in May of 2009 and was re-elected in April 2011. Last month he was named Mayor Pro Tem when Jeff Siefried resigned. He told us after a recent chamber breakfast that if re-elected, he’ll work on these three issues.
