Maplewood Baptist pastor, Rev. Steven Moseley, has announced he’s resigning that post to take a new position out of town, meaning that his Maplewood Ward 1 City Council seat will open up.
Moseley won the seat unopposed in April. Incumbent, David Cerven, had filed to run but later dropped out.
Opening of candidate filings for the April 3rd General Municipal Election opens Dec. 12. The Maplewood City Clerk will have petitions for potential candidates. Filing closes on Jan. 16.
When Barry Greenberg vacated his Ward 3 council seat after being elected mayor, five petitions were taken out and it came down to a three-candidate race in an August special election to fill the seat.
