Lederman Pulls Nomination Papers to Run for Mayor

Springfield City Council President Jesse Lederman has formally drawn nomination papers to run for Mayor of the City of Springfield.

Accompanied by his wife, Emila Lederman, the Council President took the papers out Friday morning at Springfield City Hall, the first day they were available.

Council President Lederman issues the following statement regarding this step in the campaign:

“Just over two weeks ago I stood in the middle of the neighborhood of my birth to announce our campaign for Mayor of the City of Springfield. I pledged then that ours would be a robust campaign that touches every neighborhood across our city and brings more voices to the table to write Springfield’s next chapter.

I’m looking forward to knocking on doors and collecting signatures for my nomination alongside friends, family, and supporters, all while sharing our vision for an accessible, responsive, and professional local government that meets the needs of all our neighborhoods.

I’m also continuing my efforts on the City Council, this week drawing attention to the need for increased enforcement of local hiring requirements on public construction projects, advocating for funds to support expanding internet access and affordability, and attending Committee hearings to hold absentee landlords accountable.

Our campaign will continue to be about people, principles, and ideas to build a city that is ready for the future.”

Jesse Lederman is a three-term At-Large City Councilor and the current President of the Springfield City Council. He announced his candidacy for Mayor on February 7, 2023. To learn more visit
