Election season is imminent

Deadline for filing for any of the 6 Missoula City Council seats is Thursday, 5 p.m. Tomorrow.

Geez, that one snuck up, didn’t it.

There are 6 council seats open, one in each ward. Nicholson, Ballas, Rye and Childers will presumably file (or have), with Reidy and Kendall announcing that they won’t be seeking another term.

Darn if I know what other offices are open. You sure can’t figure it out from searching around either the city or county websites. That’s a shame.

And nada for the Missoulian either. That’s a bigger shame – I mean, what is the purpose of a newspaper if they can’t report something like that? Guess there wasn’t enough people to cover a story about an upcoming election – what with all the athletes being arrested and all, how’s a newspaper to keep up???

The Ravalli Republic was able to put up a story on the filing deadline. They’ve got a few openings down there – Hamilton has 3 ward seats and a city judgeship open, Darby with 4 seats and Stevensville with 2. Darby’s mayoral seat is up too.

    Most challengers should wait until the last minute. Newspapers, in general, exist to line bird cages.

    Hey, but we get great coverage of the Flathead and Bitterroot don’t we? Everyone knows there is not enough news around Missoula to keep such an important daily (or local TV) going.
