The ballot for the Aug. 4 Moniteau County Primary election will see three contested races.
The Moniteau County Assessor seat — which has remained in flux for the past few months following the resignation of former assessor Amanda Trimble at the start of the new year — is one such race. William "Bill" Figgins and Marcy Oerly are both on the ballot. Figgins served as interim assessor from Jan. 3 until last week, when Oerly was appointed to the seat by Gov. Mike Parson for the remainder of the term.
The county commission will see the other pair of contested races. Two candidates, incumbent Noland Porter and Clint Hoellering, are in the running for 1st District Associate Commissioner. The 2nd District Associate Commissioner seat sees a three-way contest between incumbent Greg Robinson, Rick Messerli and Wesley Kirchner.
Others on the ballot for August include incumbent Moniteau County Sheriff Tony Wheatley, incumbent Public Administrator Cher Caudel and Coroner Marty Ramsdell. All of these races are uncontested.
