JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri House member plans to seek the Democratic nomination for state auditor next year. Jay Swearingen is a two-term House member from Kansas City. He says he'll make an official campaign announcement in October. Swearingen is a vice president of the Missouri Credit Union Association. He was first elected to the Legislature in 2010 and serves on committees dealing with tax policy, professional registration, financial institutions and economic development. Republican Auditor Tom Schweich is completing his first term. He defeated Democratic incumbent Susan Montee in 2010. State campaign finance reports show Schweich had about $294,000 on hand at the end of June. Swearingen had more than $11,000. The auditor's office will be the only statewide position on Missouri's November 2014 ballot. Filing officially begins next February.

   City officials in Richmond Heights are calling it "a major milestone" in the redevelopment of the southern half of Hadley Township.   The City Council on Monday evening approved a redevelopment  agreement with Menard Inc.  

   The $63 million project includes $15 million in tax increment financing.  

   Once the site plan receives final city approval, the Wisconsin-based hardware retailer can set closing dates for 99 residential parcels it's buying east of Hanley Road.  

   "After many years of battling through unresponsive developers and the worst economy in many years, everyone's hard work is coming to fruition," Richmond Heights Mayor Jim Beck said. "The residents in the southern section of Hadley will be well set for the future. Richmond Heights will benefit from another great retailer."

   Menard's plans to build a two-story, 224,000 square foot home improvement store on the land just north of Maplewood's Walmart complex, and additional retail space along Hanley Road.

   The largest coalition of organized labor unions in the St. Louis region is pulling its support for St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley's 2014 reelection bid.  Greater St. Louis Labor Council President Robert Soutier and Jeff Aboussie of the St. Louis Building and Construction Trades Council met with Dooley Monday.  

   Soutier spoke with Fox 2 News about that meeting. "And I said at this point, we're withholding support.  We would urge you not to run." 

   Dooley says he's sorry the labor leaders are pulling their support, but he has no plans to bow out of the race.

   "There is no better friend to labor than Charlie Allen Dooley," he said.  "I have been labor's friend since I've been in politics, since I've been the county executive, on the county council since 1995."

   Soutier says the action isn't the result of any one incident, but stems from a relationship that has deteriorated over time.

   "The building trades certainly have some problems with non-union contractors in the county," Soutier said.  "Certainly, the firefighters have a problem with an appointment that Dooley made for, I think, one of the training centers."

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A former suburban St. Louis mayor previously convicted of wire fraud has pleaded guilty to submitting false employment records while trying to get out of the halfway house where he was staying.

Keith Conway was sentenced in November 2011 to 21 months in prison after pleading guilty to wire fraud, theft from a federal program and witness tampering. He was also ordered to repay more than $62,000 to the city.

Conway was transferred May 1 from federal prison in Marion, Illinois to a St. Louis halfway house and was supposed to be working, but instead lied and submitted fake pay stubs.

The 49-year-old pleaded guilty Monday to four felony counts of filing false documents and will be sentenced in December.

NEW MADRID, Mo. (AP) - The family of an 83-year-old southeast Missouri woman missing since late August is offering a $25,000 reward in hopes of her safe return.

The Sikeston Standard Democrat reports the reward was announced Monday following another intensive search for Barbara Stoffer, of New Madrid.

Stoffer was last seen on the afternoon of Aug. 20. She drove a green 1993 Volvo, and friends said she visited the nearby Mississippi River daily.

Assistant New Madrid Police Chief Joey Higgerson says the reward is being offered for Stoffer's return or for information leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone involved in her disappearance.

Dozens of volunteers joined law enforcement officers from Missouri, Tennessee and Illinois in a renewed search Saturday. An earlier search included dive teams from the Missouri Highway Patrol.
