Candidate filing period has begun, ends in just 2-plus weeks (Dec. 28)
The candidate filing period for the April municipal election began Tuesday.
It’s a shortened filing period this year, which will end Tuesday, Dec. 28.
Among those signing up early are Webb City Mayor Lynn Ragsdale and Webb City R-7 School Board candidates Stephen Crane and Dan McGrew.
Carterville City Council races are expected to draw multiple candidates this year.
Neck City Mayor Don Hole says he will seek re-election to his seat. And because of perennial low turnout, voters will be asked to take advantage of a law that allows for no election if the number of candidates equals the number of openings.
Here’s a form with the terms that are expiring and the candidates, if any, that have filed for them. We’ll be updating it through the filing period and election.
