City of Springfield Zone 1 Council Person Phyllis Ferguson has a long history of community involvement. Even before her appointment to City Council in April 2015, Ferguson had a reputation as a tireless advocate for the 40,000 residents of Springfield’s northwest quadrant.
“I think people have to understand, there are very deep roots in northwest Springfield. We have really wonderful homes there, we have great parks and strong neighborhoods. We don’t have a lot of traffic, and I think those are assets people forget,” she said.
