Renee Reuter Retains Her Seat on the Jefferson County Council

The Republican incumbent won the race for the council's District 2 seat. The vote was 53.77 percent to 46.08 percent over challenger Cheryl Hermann.

Renee Reuter (R) has won back her District 2 seat on the Jefferson County Council, which covers Fenton, portions of Arnold and Imperial.

Patch called Reuter, who just got off the phone with election judges in Hillsboro, and she declared victory.

"I have some very exciting news," she said. "I won the race by 53.77 percent. I literally just hung up the phone with the election judges 30 seconds before you called."

She said her opponent Cheryl Hermann (D) received 46.08 percent of the vote. Hermann has served on the Fox C-6 School Board since 2000. 

Hermann told Patch, "I appreciate how Renee ran such a clean election campaign and I wish her and the rest of the County Council the best."

Reuter, of Imperial, was elected to a two-year term to the County Council in 2010. Her new term will last four years.

The best person for the job won the seat. Renee Reuter has shown that she wants and is deserved of this position. She works tirelessly for her district and the county. Great job, Renee!
