More Candidates File For Election; Cutoff Is Dec. 28

Filings continue trickling in for the Ste. Genevieve Board of Aldermen race, with general municipal elections set for Tuesday, April 5, 2022.

Incumbent Jeff Eydmann, who represents Ward 3 in Ste. Genevieve, officially filed on Tuesday, Dec. 14, according to an email from city clerk Pam Meyer.

That means three of four incumbents have filed, a list that also includes Bob Donovan in Ward 2 and Joe Prince in Ward 4.

Ward 1’s Gary Smith still has yet to file, and he could neither confirm or deny he would run again for aldermen. Smith serves as a business instructor for the Ste. Genevieve R-II school district.

Board of aldermen members serve two-year terms, with Susie Johnson winning a contested race in Ward 1 last April. Michael “Buck” Jokerst (Ward 2), Mike Raney (Ward 3) and Ashley Armbruster (Ward 4) all ran unopposed.

There also are board of aldermen races in St. Mary and Bloomsdale; however, there are no special referendum questions on the ballot in either community this year.

Elections also will be conducted in the Ste. Genevieve R-II School District, Ste. Genevieve County offices, Ste. Genevieve County Ambulance Board, Ste. Genevieve County Memorial Hospital Board, Special Road District A, Public Water Supply District No. 1 and Lake Forest Clean Water District.

Filing began at 8 a.m. on Dec. 7, 2021, and it will run though 5 p.m. on Dec. 28, 2021. 

The final certification date for the general municipal election is Jan. 25, 2022. The last day to register for voting is March 9, 2022.

The Herald will run an updated story at the conclusion of filing.
