Parties Seek Applicants for Interim Commissioner
BOONE COUNTY - The Republican and Democratic parties announced an open call Friday for Boone County Commissioner applicants. The seat is vacant after former Boone County Commissioner Ed Robb died Saturday.
Each party will select a nominee from the applicant pools to reccomend. Gov. Jay Nixon will appoint the next County Commissioner.
The Republican Central Committee said in a news release that because Robb was a fiscal conservative, it hopes the governor will strongly consider the Repulblican reccomendation. The Republican Central Committee will accept applications until 5 p.m. Oct. 10. Applicants will also give an oral presentation for the committee at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 11.
