SCOTT CITY, Mo. (AP) - The former mayor of a southeast Missouri town who resigned after allegations he abused his position says he wants his job back.

Ron Cummins on Tuesday filed to run in April's election for Scott City mayor. He will have to defeat the current mayor, Norman Brant, who was named to replace Cummins when he resigned.

Brant also filed to run for mayor in April. They seek to finish a term that ends in April 2020.
