Special Election for Jefferson County State Senate Seat
By Tom Weber, KWMU
Voters in northern Jefferson County will pick a new State Senator in Tuesday's special election.
Steve Stoll resigned the seat in January to take a job in Festus city government.
Four people are running for the job; three of them are current or former State Representatives (Republican Bill Alter, Democrat Rick Johnson, Independent Harold Selby). The fourth is a former TV sportscaster ('Zip' Rzeppa) who thinks he'll be more recognized than the others.
The election also shows how Jefferson County is changing.
KWMU's Tom Weber prepared this report.
