November 6 mid-term elections have a competitive campaign for Boone County Clerk.

Boone County Clerk is a four-year term elected official, who is responsible for the records, rules, and proceedings of the County Commission. Responsibilities also include inspecting and reviewing all voter precinct boundaries, conducting elections and administrative duties.

Taylor W. Burks is the current appointed Republican Boone County Clerk. Previous to his appointment, Burks was the Director of Logistics at the University of Missouri. Burks earned a Bachelor of Science in Justice Systems at Truman State University, a Master of Arts in Administrative Leadership from the University of Oklahoma, and his Master of Accounting at Washington University in St. Louis.

A U.S. Navy veteran who still serves in the reserves, Burks wants to implement his military experience, and education into the elected position as County Clerk.

“Being a veteran, there are no Republicans or Democrats, just individuals serving our county,” Burks says. “I am the only candidate, including my opponent, that on the record has advocated across the political isle.”
