Here is the earlier story:

The Boonville mayor has recommended Dave Nicholas, owner of Dave's Country Market, to the City Council to represent Boonville and Cooper County at the Moberly Area Economic Development Corporation Board of Directors.

The decision in favor of Nicholas was made due his experience in the local business sector and city government, Mayor Julie Thacher said this morning.

Nicholas declined to talk on his possible new postion pending the City Council’s approval.

Thacher recommended Nicholas as the board member on Jan. 13 but the first public discussion will be held tonight when the City Council votes on the recommendation.

Nicholas, who first bought his business in Boonville in 1978 and moved to town a year later,  also served as the city’s mayor for four years from 2006.
