Even though the 2012 election cycle is now a thing of the past, the 2013 campaign season is not far off. Candidates for April's municipal elections for city councils and school boards can officially file for those races beginning December 11.
In Creve Coeur, city council seats currently held by Beth Kistner (Ward 1), Tara Nealey (Ward 2), Charlotte D'Alfonso (Ward 3) and Scott Saunders (Ward 4) will be up for election.
Kistner cannot seek a re-election due to term limits. D'Alfonso and Saunders have confirmed that to Patch that they will seek second terms. Nealey told Patch this week she is undecided on filing but is "operating on the assumption" that she will.
On the Parkway School District Board of Education, Tom Appelbaum has confirmed he will seek a new term. Dr. Sam Sciortino's seat is also up for election.
On the Ladue School District Board of Education, Board President Jayne Langsam and Vice President Jeff Kopolow hold seats up for election.
In Pattonville Schools, board seats held by Ruth Petrov and Robert Dillon will be on the ballot.
The filing period opens December 11 and closes January 15.
