History made in Springfield, City Council the most diverse it’s ever been


History is being made in the City of Springfield. For the first time, three African-Americans and three women are serving on the City Council. “We have the most diverse City Council that we’ve ever had in the City of Springfield,” Frank McNeil, former alderperson said. This moment is long overdue according to McNeil who served as one of the first African-American aldermen in 1988. Allan Woodson also served as the other African American alderman during that time.
