There will be no competitive races in the Osage Beach municipal election next week. The final list of registered candidates has been released, with one person running for each of the three available seats on the Board of Aldermen. Incumbents Gregory Massey and Richard Ross are seeking re-election for wards one and three, respectively. Tyler Becker is the only candidate that filed to represent the city’s second ward. Current Alderman Jeff Bethurem, after initially announcing that he would not seek re-election, attempted to file to run as a write-in candidate, but missed the filing deadline.
