    Group With Ties To Alderman McMenamin Distributing Pro Residency Literature

    Posted 2012-10-01 06:01:00 by WMAY News

    A group calling itself “Springfield Citizens for Residency” is distributing literature asking city residents to support the upcoming referendum on a residency requirement for future city workers.

    The group was established late last month, and has several ties to Alderman Joe McMenamin, the leading city council supporter of a residency requirement.

    The group’s mailing address is the same as McMenamin’s law office, and McMenamin’s wife is listed as its treasurer.

    A piece distributed by the group over the weekend says a residency rule would grow the city’s tax base, create demand for real estate, and, quote, “generate vested city employees.”

    Some random 84 year old woman donated a few thousand bucks for this.

    Random.

    Just random.

    This is insane.

    This guy. He can't let it go.

    There has to be a reason for his personal benefit to keep on it this hard.

    What could that be?

    He said something about how residency would make people "vested" in Springfield.

    That is such a small town thing to say. Such a wannabe small town "goober" thing to say.

    The fun part is that the November vote doesn't change anything. It is advisory so the council can choose to ignore the result and vote however they planned to vote anyway.
    Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    I don't always start threads...but when I do, I check to avoid re-posts.

    There has to be some reason why this is such a big deal with him. I want to know what it is.
