Municipal election sign-ups began the morning of Dec. 17 and many eyes in Pemiscot County are turned to the Caruthersville, MO’s mayoral race. The municipal elections are held April 8, 2014 and the sign up period is Dec. 17 – Jan. 21, 2014. According to the Missouri Secretary of State, the final certification of candidates is due Jan. 28.

As of story time, no one had signed up to run for the mayor’s position, but speculation from political pundits in town are that several people are waiting in the wings.

According to City Clerk Melinda Scifries, other seats up for election include Treasurer, Collector, City Marshall, and four Council members, Barabara Rodgers, Barabara Pullam, Baughn Merideth, and Sheila Simpson. Simpson and Rodgers filed for re-election today along with City Marshall Tony Jones, Collector Donna Brooks, and Treasurer Tekella Motton.

The Mayor’s position has not been in a vacant seat in recent history and there is much speculation at local coffee shops and hang outs about who will emerge and sign up. Speculation is that some are waiting to see who will be the first to throw their hat in the ring.
