Monterey Council Officially Agrees Not to Hold Town Convention, Due to Lack of Contested Races

Monterey has officially called off its town convention. With no contested races this year, the town council passed a resolution Monday, formally stating that no convention will be held, according to Council President Doug Denton.

Denton says Pulaski County Election Board Member Jessye Gilley was there to oversee the process. The resolution was filed with the County Clerk’s Office the following day.

The only Monterey candidates to file for this year’s election by the August 1 deadline were the incumbent office-holders. That means Clerk-Treasurer Linda McCune and town council members Denton, Emily L. Bailey, and James Fleury will all stay in office for another four-year term beginning January 1, 2020.
