ICON ENDORSES DICENSO
Members of Springfield ICON (Inner City Older Neighborhoods) met on Monday, March 27, and voted to endorse Kristin DiCenso for Ward 6 Alderman over opponent Martin Fruchtl, to replace the position vacated when former Alderman Cory Jobe moved out of the city. “I think Kristin has experience beyond just Springfield,” said Carol Kneedler of Springfield ICON, citing DiCenso’s experience in the fields of budget, public policy and transportation. “She seems to understand some of the concerns that older neighborhoods are facing,” Kneedler continued, mentioning zoning, problem properties, garbage and infrastructure as chief among these. “We hosted both candidates in February and she answered our questions completely and seems to have a good grasp on the issues.” The election will be held April 4.
