Candidates needed for upcoming vacant seats
Candidate filings for local board positions are very low for this election term.
“We only have one person, so far, that has filed for a city council position,” Petersburg City Clerk Kathy O'Rear said. “We also have only one for the Library Board.”
O'Rear explained that there are still more than 20 positions to be filled with only a couple of weeks left to get petitions in for these positions.
“We need more candidates,” O'Rear said. “Get in your petition now.”
