Congratulations, Rasheen Aldridge, Our Next 78th District State Rep.

RasheenPhotoThe August 22nd Deadline to file for the Special Election for 78th District Missouri House has come and gone. The only candidate to file was 5th Ward Democratic Committeeman Rasheen Aldridge, meaning he is unopposed for the position.

Aldridge defeated 7th Ward Committeeman Marty Murray Jr. for the nomination. Last year, Aldridge defeated Murray in his re-election bid for chairmanship of the 78th District Democratic Party Committee.

The Republican, Green, Libertarian, and Constitution Parties could have submitted a nominee but did not. No one submitted petition signatures to get on the ballot as an Independent candidate. Less than 200 signatures were needed.

The November 5th Special Election was made necessary by the resignation of State Rep. Bruce Franks Jr. In all, there are six Missouri House seats across the state with Special Elections on November 5th.

In the 7th Ward, Voters in Precincts 4, 5, and 6 (voting at Central Library in Downtown, St. Vincent’s Hall in LaSalle Park, and Metropolitan Community Church in Soulard) are in 78th District.

Thursday, Democratic Party Ward Committeemen and Ward Committeewomen representing one or more precincts within the 78th Missouri House District will nominate a candidate for a November 5th Special Election to fill the vacancy caused by resignation of State Rep. Bruce Franks, Jr.

According to Governor Mike Parson’s call for the Special Election, political parties have until August 22nd to nominate their candidates.

Democratic Party Committeepeople will nominate using weighted voting. The candidates to date are 5th Ward Committeeman Rasheen Aldridge and 7th Ward Committeeman Marty Murray, Jr.
