Governor appoints Winders as presiding commissioner

Posted

Governor Mike Parson recently appointed Alan Winders as presiding commissioner of Audrain County. Parson made the appointment effective Sept. 13, filling the vacancy created when Steve Hobbs left the Audrain County Commission earlier in the month.

 “I want to thank Governor Parson for his confidence and for making the appointment,” said Winders. “It has been a pleasure to serve as associate commissioner and I am honored by the governor’s appointment as presiding commissioner.”

 “The appointment will allow the commission to seamlessly continue the important work of the commission,” said associate commissioner, Tracy Graham. “We are in the middle of a number of important programs and projects, this will allow Alan and I to be as efficient as possible as we move forward.”

 “The Audrain County Commission works as a team,” Winders added. “That team is changing around a little but our commitment, to do the best we can for the people of Audrain, remains absolutely unchanged.”

 The appointment will fill the position for the unexpired term through 2022.  Winders was first elected to the commission in 2016.  The commission will work with the governor’s office to fill the position of associate commissioner of the Eastern District created by Winders appointment.  

County clerk Lisa Smith performed the swearing in of Winders on Tuesday, Sept. 13.
