First of all, thank you all for your continued belief in investment in our Springfield. In response to your requests/demands – “the answer is no.”
Again, I am a firm believer in legal immigration, as my parents went through and are now American citizens too. The key here is assistance programs must be properly run with extensive follow through efforts that will empower those in need, from legal immigrants to our own residents in need too. Important here, is that these efforts do not put unsustainable financial pressures or public safety issues on our city budget, residents and business community.
Again, thank you for your concern. Wishing you and your families good health, luck, and continued success in all your future endeavors. Take care and God Bless.
Mayor Domenic J. Sarno
