Elected Mayor

Joe Quimby - Democratic

The City of Springfield's Mayoral recall election was a result of a town meeting decision which dicided so due to a number of failures of the Quimby administration, the most recent being the disastrous response to a multi-car pileup. Quimby retained his office, though narrowly, as it was only due to the fact that the town charter stated that a candidate must win at least 5% of the vote to oust a sitting mayor, which no candidate, including Quimby, did.


Numerous candidates appeared on the ballot. The following is an incomplete list of them and their stances.
