Anthony (Tony) Caldwell filed last week to run unopposed for mayor of South Prairie, according to the Pierce County elections website.

The Pierce County Auditor’s office opened a special three-day filing period last week for a couple dozen races that had yet to attract candidates. Among those open spots, South Prairie had a mayor and council position up for grabs.

Nobody filed for South Prairie council Position 5, according to the elections website. Caldwell filed Friday morning, the last day of the filing period.

In Roy, nobody filed to run for the open council Position 3. The City Council will discuss the vacancy at its meeting tonight (Monday, June 10).

For a full list of the candidates who filed last week and during May’s regular filing period, go to the Pierce County elections website and click on the “Candidates who have filed” link.
