In Jefferson City, the downtown watch parties for the Second and Third Ward city council candidates were small, but the support was evident.
Ken Hussey hosted his watch party at J.P Fenny’s Sports Bar and Pub on High Street, where friends and family gathered watching election results on television.
He emerged as the victor, with 70 percent of the vote according, to KRCG TV. Hussey said he’s glad to have the support of the Third Ward and he’s ready to get to work to help move Jefferson City forward.
It's been a busy week in Jefferson City. While the city was considering how to overcome a $1.68 million budget deficit, the Public Works Director and Communications Director both decided to resign on the same day this week.
