We are saddened by Liberty’s loss of councilman Walt McJunkin. Councilman McJunkin passed away Friday evening (3/1). Walt loved Liberty, he loved his family and friends. He will be greatly missed by many. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.
With the passing of Councilman Walt McJunkin on Friday, March 1, 2013, a Special Election will occur on Tuesday, May 28, 2013, to fill the unexpired term of Liberty City Council Ward 2 Seat. A runoff election, if necessary, will occur Tuesday, June 11, 2013.
Candidate fling for the special election shall open at Noon, March 22, 2013 at City Hall and shall close at Noon, April 1, 2013.
If only one candidate files during this filing period AND if no one comes forward to be a write-in candidate within 2 weeks of filing closing, no special election shall be held. In this scenario, the person who filed will be declared elected.
