Nonelection declared in Puxico
A nonelection has been declared in Puxico following the withdrawal of a candidate from the board of aldermen race. City Clerk Alice Patrick said in a news release that Gary Wilfong has withdrawn from the Ward I race.
Under Puxico City ordinance 105.015 the city can forgo an election when there is only one candidate up for the available seat. This is now the case as incumbents Patti McLean and Peter Coutavas are running unopposed in Wards I and II respectively. This ordinance was approved by Puxico voters in the April 2021 municipal election.
The candidates will assume responsibilities of the office for which they are running at the April meeting of the Puxico Board of Aldermen.
