Before a meeting on Monday, ten Cape Girardeau residents were angling to fill a ward 3 vacancy on the city council. That number has now been whittled down to three applicants: Tom Roy, Nate Thomas, and Christina Mershon.

Roy, a medical practice manager at SoutheastHEALTH, is an alumni of Southeast Missouri State University, and has called Cape Girardeau home for the last 19 years. 

“[I] don’t have any special interests, don’t have any special agendas,” he said. “Just hoping the skills I've accumulated over the last 30 years can help.”
