On Thursday afternoon (Feb. 14), Pettis County Clerk Nick LaStrada announced his intentions to seek reelection as Pettis County Clerk.

A large crowd of family, friends and supporters gathered in the first floor of the Pettis County Courthouse to hear the Republican candidate ask for their votes at election time.

After the announcement, KSIS had the opportunity to talk to LaStrada about the three and a half years he has served as Pettis County Clerk and the innovations he feels he has brought to that office.
