“When I first took on this job, I did state that I would be seeking re-election in 2018. Given the circumstances, I thought it was important to say that upfront,” says Galloway.

Galloway, a Democrat, was appointed in 2015 by Democratic Governor Jay Nixon after previous Auditor Tom Schweich, a Republican, committed suicide. Republicans criticized Nixon for handpicking someone from his own party.

“I wouldn’t have wanted this job if it wasn’t something that I was serious about and wanted to keep for a long period of time,” says Galloway.

Galloway is a former Boone County Treasurer.
