In an interview with Pettis County Presiding Commissioner John Meehan on Thursday morning, Meehan discussed his decision not to run for re-election and his commitment to spend the last year of his four-year term working hard for the people of Pettis County.

Meehan also talked about the 2014 budget for Pettis County and his hope that some quality candidates come forward to run for Pettis County Commissioner. Meehan said the reason he announced his intention not to run this early is to give those who might wish to run the time make that decision.
