Three candidates file to run for mayor in Crestwood November special race


The special election for Crestwood mayor will be a three-way contest between Ward 3 Alderman Grant Mabie and two newcomers to city government.

Filing closed last week for the Nov. 6 election, which will be a rare November race for Crestwood mayor due to the June resignation of former Mayor Gregg Roby for health reasons. Ward 4 Alderman Tony Kennedy has been serving as acting mayor in the months since.

Mabie filed first for mayor after announcing his run on Facebook before filing opened. A few weeks later, Christopher Court, a 15-year resident but a political newcomer, filed to run. And by the last day to sign up, Aug. 21, Neil Brown filed. He is also new to Crestwood city government.
