Scott Seek for Jefferson County Council in District 5

(Hillsboro) There has been a vacancy within the Jefferson County Council in District 5 since Tracey Perry had to resign after moving out of the district boundaries. Three Republicans are on the August primary ballot to fill the open seat. One of those is Scott Seek of Festus. He says he’s learned a lot about different aspects of local government since becoming a member of the Jefferson County Tourism Board as part of the Jefferson County Growth Association.

Seek says he knows the county will be growing in terms of population, and he’s ready for those needed changes.

Seek will be opposed by Tony Pousosa of Herculaneum and Bobby Kaye of Festus in the Primary election on August 2nd. The winner will likely be appointed to the council to fill the remaining term til the end of the year, and begin the elected term in 2023.
