Filing Season

Filing for political office opens in a few minutes. Candidates for state offices, the legislature, etc., are lining up in Jeff City, while our County Clerk is gearing up to take all the local filings. One of the lesser-known offices open for filing is committeeperson for each political party. People who will have been registered voters in their precinct for a year come August 8th can run for committeman or committeewoman for their preferred political party - Libertarian, Democratic or Republican. There's no filing fee, financial disclosure or anything like that.

If you're a Democrat or Republican and want to get involved in your party (or just shake up its establishment), go file. If you're a Libertarian, give me a call or drop me an email first - filing is open for most of March. Meanwhile, I'm going to file for Libertarian committeeman from Montserrat Township.
