Two longtime Lake Area residents have declared their candidacy for the newly-created 124th district Missouri House of Representatives seat.
One of them is former Camden County Presiding Commissioner Carolyn Loraine. Her experience includes being the first woman elected to School of the Osage Board of Education in 1988 and serving for 16 years, including five as President of the Board. In 2002, Loraine was elected Presiding Commissioner of Camden County, a position she held for eight years.
Fellow Republican Rocky Miller is also running for the 124th district seat. Miller is a professional engineer, land surveyor, and licensed water and wastewater plant operator. He is a former director of the Missouri School Board Association.
More candidates are expected to enter the race before the first day of filing, February 28th.
