JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) – Missouri’s deputy state auditor says he and another official will lose their jobs once a new auditor takes office next week.

Deputy Auditor Harry Otto said Wednesday that he and chief of staff Trish Vincent will be replaced when Nicole Galloway is sworn-in.

Galloway was picked by fellow Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon as a permanent replacement to former Republican Auditor Tom Schweich. Schweich fatally shot himself Feb. 26.

Schweich’s spokesman Spence Jackson killed himself a month later. Police investigating his death say he left a hand-written note expressing concern about potentially becoming unemployed.

Otto says those are the only two planned staffing changes so far. He says most of the employees likely will remain.
