Spoke to Jim Gillen, City Desk editor at the Republican yesterday-- asked him WHY the paper keeps getting the ward representation deadline wrong. He said, "Don't worry, we'll take care of it."
So in this morning's paper, inside section bottom of left side, about ONE INCH that says
Springfield: State law requires the city get approval to put a question on the Nov. 6 ballot ny Oct. 2. The date was incorrect in a newsbrief and editorial yesterday, due to an editing error.
That's the whole thing. Why didn't the paper mention the question under discussion is ward representation? A little context would have been more than appropriate.
