Kate Becker wins collector's race

As the nation celebrates President Barack Obama claiming a second term, several local incumbents are also waving banners of success. The only contested race in Audrain was the collector's race between Democrat Heather Clubb-Wagner and Republican Kate Becker, with Becker walking away with the win.
"I was excited and humbled at the same time," Becker said this morning. She said her immediate plans are to extend the hours of the Collector's Office and to continue "doing good for the citizens of Audrain County, because they have been so good to me."
Becker brings to the table a master's in finance and she has worked the last six years overseeing and protecting government funds for the Missouri National Guard. She has done extensive community service, and says she "loves her county and looks forward to serving it."
Becker took the race with 5,458 votes and Clubb-Wagner drew in 4,173.
