This is the final day (Tuesday) for candidates to file for the upcoming April municipal election. And this time around, there are some changes to the filing process. State law now requires that those filing present an affidavit with the Missouri department of revenue stating they owe no federal, state or local taxes. A copy of the affidavit must also be submitted to the municipality or district at the time of filing. A number of local races will be decided by lake area voters when they go to the polls on April 7th.
