April 2010 Plato election results
PLATO, Mo. (April 7, 2010) — Voters in Plato returned incumbent Plato R-V School Board member Dewayne Baker to the board and elected new board member Brandi Niebruegge Couch by wide margins on Tuesday, with both winning by wide margins in most of the counties of the four-county district.

Districtwide, Baker received 163 votes and Couch received 132 compared to much smaller totals of 66 for former board member Pete Scurlock, who was appointed to fill a vacancy but lost his bid last year to stay on the board, and challenger Mickey Bowers with 49 votes.

Scurlock performed best in Pulaski County’s Big Piney precinct on the far southeast end of Fort Leonard Wood where he received 14 votes, the same as Couch, and Baker received 15 with Bowers polling only 9 votes. Elsewhere, the two challengers lost by wide margins and in no other county did the closest challenger receive even half as many votes as Couch, who took second place in Texas and Laclede counties, and tied with Baker in Wright County.

Both incumbents ran unopposed for the Plato Village Board, with Bobby Biram receiving 14 votes and Harold Dandridge receiving 13 votes, and both will serve on the board for another term.
