Springfield Mayor Sean VanGordon is inviting the community to share their thoughts with him directly, in the second-ever Visit with Mayor VanGordon.

Community members are encouraged to join in the discussion with their mayor from 6-7 p.m., Tuesday, October 5. Register at https://us06web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_4tiY9yfiRhKLkm4R8qDQXw

This effort seeks to build a new way for community members to learn more about City efforts and who we are. The platform is a casual and personal way to promote conversations for our community.

In the State of the City Address, Mayor VanGordon identified areas of focus to guide the City through 2021. These, in part, include:

  • Resourcefulness being how we collaborate, innovate, and create to move the community forward.
  • Renewing our commitment is the choice we make to be part of this community. To address long-term problems that we have, and to respect each other while we work toward our future.

“This project builds on these focus areas, creating an opportunity for accessible leadership in a way we’ve never done before,” said Mayor VanGordon. “It will remain fluid and open to change as we fine-tune this effort based on the needs of those we serve.”

These visits began June 22 and will continue each quarter.
