City Council Candidates Set For April 5 Election
According to the City of Sedalia’s Website, the field of candidates for Sedalia City Council seats in the up-coming April 5 election is now complete.
The election will see three of the four seats in a contested race, with only councilwoman Bonita Nash of the Second Ward without an opponent. Nash was appointed to the council upon the death of councilwoman Wanda Monsees in 2014, and then won the 2015 election for a one-year term. Jim Cunningham, current councilman for the 1st Ward, announced months earlier that he would not run for that seat again. The contest for the 1st Ward seat will now be between Chuck Leftwich and Jeff Leeman.
Current Third Ward councilman Donald Meier will face off against W.T. (Tom) Cunningham Jr., while Tolbert (Tollie) L. Rowe the current 4th Ward candidate’s opponent is John Fritz.
The Sedalia 200 School Board will not be required to participate in the April 5 Election this cycle, as no-one filed to run against the two-current school board members David Wolf, and Diana Nichols, which means they will retain their seats on the Sedalia 200 School Board. In the Municipal Court Judge race, Current Judge Deborah Gillespie Mitchell's seat is not contested.
