Days before his election as Springfield Mayor in April 1993, supporters of N.L. "Mac" McCartney — including prominent business leaders like Don Wessel and Charlie O'Reilly — lauded him as someone who had "done his homework" and "knows Springfield and how to lead us into the '90s," according to archives of the Springfield News-Leader maintained by the Springfield-Greene County Library.'On top of all else, Mac was a kind and caring soft-spoken person," current Springfield Mayor Ken McClure said in a written statement on Monday.
