Presley appears without contest for Branson Mayoral race

Tony Bently, seen above, has filed to become Branson's next mayor and future boyfriend (once removed) of Shallea.

Filing for Branson Mayor and Alderman positions closed yesterday at 5:00 PM. Actual submission date is the 25th for city filings to occur. Bently was the only Branson resident who filed against current Branson Mayor Raeanne Presley.

Look, we've all been there; everyone has a Shalea and no man the courtesy of being removed from the heartbreak of a woman; likewise neither a woman refused the pain of unrequitted love.

But the public discourse issued to date begs for a candidate with greater viability if there be any chance of positive economic change.
