JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — The representative for Missouri’s 39th District, which includes Carroll, Chariton and Ray Counties will have to resign his post – Representative Joe Don McGaugh was appointed by Missouri Governor Eric Greitens Thursday to serve as the Associate Circuit Judge for Carroll County.

He replaces Kevin Walden, who Governor Greitens appointed to the Circuit Court earlier in October.

McGaugh is required by law to resign his seat in the Missouri House of Representatives and will also be required to close both of his law practices upon acceptance of the judgeship.

“Representative Joe Don McGaugh has distinguished himself as a dedicated public servant for the people of Carroll County,” Governor Greitens said in a news release. “I am excited to appoint him to the bench.”

McGaugh was first elected to serve in the House of Representatives as a Republican in 2012.
