The ballots for municipal elections in Columbia and Jefferson City are now closed…and it will be a heavily congested race for Jefferson City mayor. Six candidates filed to get their names on the April ballot. Three candidates got in just under the wire…former councilmen Roy Viessman, Dick Groner and Edie Vogel join Bob Scrivner, Carrie Tergin and perpetual candidate Leonard Steinman in the race for Jefferson City mayor. It’s the only contested position on the ballot. In Columbia…the city council last night added two propositions to the ballot. One is for a 63 million dollar bond issue for electrical projects.
The other deals with storm water issues.
