Interview With Mayoral Candidate Paul Palazzolo

Springfield mayoral hopeful Paul Palazzolo says a full time neighborhood coordinator will help current residents and make the city more attractive to those wanting to re-locate.  

Speaking on WUIS' Illinois Edition, Palazzolo says it will be based an approach taken in Peoria.  The coordinator would listen to concerns about issues from snow removal to fly dumping and then work with the various city departments to resolve the problem.  

"So we are learning from what Peoria has done in pioneering this kind of success.  So we will model after that and tweak it to see how we can best apply it to the City of Springfield.  But help resurrect that neighborhood feel that will be an attraction for potential businesses and customers and residents," he said.

Palazzolo, the Sangamon County Auditor, is facing City Treasurer Jim Langfelder in the April 7 general election for mayor.
