Sean Lumsden, candidate for the Springfield Park District board.

The St. Louis University law school graduate is heavily backed by labor organizations. Lumsden received the endorsement of the Springfield and Central Illinois Trades and Labor Council as well as an endorsement from Teamsters Local 916. Lumsden is a graduate of Pleasant Plains High School and currently works for an insurance company.
