And Allan Woodson, a former ..., 4 Dec 2002 [cached]
And Allan Woodson, a former alderman who ran unsuccessfully for mayor in 1995 and 1999, said Tuesday that "tons and tons of people" have asked him if he is seeking the post again, but he is not a candidate - so far.
"If someone were to come with a ton of money and lots of volunteers," he might run, Woodson said, but "that seems so unlikely that I haven't even given it serious consideration."Woodson is president and CEO of the Springfield Urban League.
Woodson said that whoever is elected mayor should look to the Urban League for help where it is available.For example, he said, his organization could, on a volunteer basis, help recruit minority applicants for the police and fire departments.
