Elections sign ups continue for the Apr. 8, 2014 municipal elections and as of Dec. 20, still no one has signed up for the empty Mayor’s seat in the City of Caruthersville. Two more candidates have thrown their hat in the ring though for the council elections. Four seats are up for election, including Baughn Merideth, Barbara Rodgers, Barbara Pullam and Sheila Simpson.

According to City Clerk Melinda Scifries, two additional candidates registered on Dec. 20. J.J. Bullington has registered in Ward 3, and Nick Cartee has signed up in Ward 4. Cartee’s registration sets up the first contested race so far in Caruthersville. He will be taking on incumbent Sheila Simpson.

Other seats up for election include City Marshall, Collector, and Treasurer. The incumbents for Treasurer, Collector and City Marshall have all filed and are still unopposed. According to the Missouri Secretary of State, the deadline to file is end of business on Jan. 21.

In Hayti, City Clerk Karla Laws says that Alderman Wendell Lockridge has signed up for re-election on the remaining one year term in his ward.
