Through Friday, four candidates have filed for next year's Independence City Council elections – including three for the two at-large seats. Mayor Eileen Weir is the lone person who has filed for that position in the April 2018 elections.
Mike Huff, Brice Stewart and current Council Member Karen DeLuccie have filed for the two at-large spots. At least three others, including current at-large Council Member Chris Whiting, had picked up election packets.
The deadline to file is Nov. 22, and candidates must have 250 valid signatures from registered voters in order to file. The primary election for mayor and the two at-large seats is Feb. 6, with the general election two months later.
