SIKESTON -- There will be a new face on the Sikeston City Council following the April 3 election.

As of the last day to file for City Council positions on Nov. 21, Ward 1 Councilman Jerry Pullen and Ward 4 Councilman Michael Harris had both filed for new terms without opposition, according to City Clerk Carroll Couch.

Councilman Bill Stokes, who presently holds the at-large council seat up for election in April, did not file for another term.

Filed for the position are Mike Bohannon and Matt Tanner.

There are not more than two candidates for any of the open positions, "so we bypass the primary day and go right to the general election in April," Couch said.
