For Immediate Release Wednesday, February 4, 2009

Libertarians guaranteed city council seats in Grandview, Springfield

Missouri is already assured of two local election victories in April, state chair Glenn Neilsen reports.

Mike Ferguson is running unopposed for a seat on the Grandview City Council, assuring the LP of yet another elected official.

In Missouri’s third largest city, Tom Martz and Robert Stephens were the top two finishers in a primary runoff for a seat on the Springfield City Council Tuesday. The two libertarians will face off in the non-partisan April municipal election to join Libertarian Doug Burlison on the Council. Burlison was elected in 2007.
