Mealy, Frazee elected to South Callaway school board

Mealy, Frazee elected to South Callaway school board

MOKANE — Voters in the South Callaway R-2 School District voted incumbent Todd Mealy and Sharon Frazee onto the school board Tuesday, knocking out Robert Munford and Richard Jones.

A total of 292 votes were cast in the race, 9.28 percent of the 3,147 eligible voters, according to unofficial results from the Callaway County clerk's office.

Members of the school board serve three-year terms with no salary or stipend.

Mealy, who was board president during his last term, gathered 196 votes. A lineman with Ameren, Mealy has served on the board for six years and previously said he has no agenda looking forward.

"Being on the board's not always easy," Mealy said in February. "There's very tough decisions to be made at that time. I guess the only thing I've always done is try to make the best decisions regardless of how it affects myself or (my) children."

Frazee, who took home 208 votes, retired from South Callaway in May 2017 after 18 years of teaching. She said she decided to run so the board could have a "teacher's point of view."

Munford had 72 votes, and Jones had 75.
