More candidates file today for County Treasurer, Prosecuting Attorney
PULASKI COUNTY, Mo. (March 30, 2010) — With barely half an hour left before deadline, three more candidates have turned in nomination papers for Pulaski County offices.

Republicans will now have a three-way race between the incumbent prosecutor, Deborah Hooper of Waynesville and challenger Jeff Thomas of Dixon, both of whom filed on the first day, and Kevin Hillman, the St. Robert City Attorney and Waynesville Municipal Judge, who filed today. The winner in that race will face Wayne Gifford, who so far is the only Democrat to run for prosecutor.

Until today, Sue Rapone of Waynesville was the only candidate to file for the seat now held by County Treasurer Morris Roam, a Crocker Democrat who was appointed last fall by Gov. Jay Nixon to fill a vacancy after Republican Barbara Thomas resigned. Rapone is a Republican, and she will now face a challenge from Laquey Republican Larry Southard. The winning candidate will face Ted Helms, a Crocker Democrat who filed today along with Southard.

Candidates for county office need to file before 5 p.m. today with County Clerk Diana Linnenbringer. Candidates for state and federal office file with the secretary of state’s office in Jefferson City.
