Mayor delivers State of the City
Mayor Bob Stephens shared his views about the state of Springfield during the Chamber of Commerce's Good Morning Springfield! program on June 6. Stephens said the City is stronger than it was last year. "Last year, I delivered this State of the City address and indicated that, in spite of several years of recession, the condition of Springfield, Missouri was strong. It is truly a high point for me to stand here as your mayor and tell you that today the State of the City is even better," he said.
