SAINT ROBERT, Mo. (Dec. 16, 2009) — The second day of candidate filings for school boards and city councils was even slower than the first, with only incumbent Municipal Judge Thomas Julian of St. Robert filing candidacy papers on Wednesday.
Julian joins nine other candidates, all but three of them incumbents, who turned in candidacy papers on Tuesday, which was the first day of candidate filings. Challengers Mark Sasfy, Tommy Nichols and Nathan Purdome are seeking positions on the Crocker, Dixon, and Waynesville school boards, respectively.
Candidate filing began Tuesday and runs until Jan. 19 for the April 6 election. Voters have until March 10 to register for the April 6 election.
Unlike county elections where candidates must register with the county clerk’s office in the courthouse, candidates for school boards, city councils, fire districts, water districts, and other special districts go to their city clerk, school board secretary, or other designated official to turn in their candidacy papers. The only candidates who must register with the county clerk are those running for the Pulaski County Health Board.
A complete list of incumbents and declared candidates for school and city elections follows.
Most school board races are for three-year terms and most city council races are for two-year terms. The exceptions are in Waynesville, where Councilman Perry Miller was appointed to fill the balance of a two-year term in Ward II and is seeking election to the second year of his term, and in Laquey, where an open one-year school board position is available because Wendy Wood resigned from the board. Both communities also have regular two-year city council and three-year school board seats available.
