Pritchett, Stokes Fined by Missouri Ethics Commission
Wentzville Patch - almost 5 years
On April 19, the Missouri Ethics Commission (MEC) filed orders to fine Wentzville board of aldermen candidates Jeremy Pritchett and Rick Stokes and their campaign committees for failing to include some state-required wording on campaign materials. The complaint against Rich Stokes stated that Stokes and his committee had published an ad in Crossroads Newsmagazine that failed to include the wording "Paid for by Citizens for Rick Stokes, Donn Lesser, Treasurer." The complaint against Jeremy Pritchett concerned campaign signs that failed to carry the statement "Paid for by Friends for Jeremy Pritchett as Alderman, Jill Matlick, Treasurer." The signs instead carried the wording "Paid for by Friends of Jeremy" on the back of the signs. The required wording on campaign materials should be "clear and conspicuous," according to the MEC. Both candidates were fined $100. Stokes won his race for re-election to the board of alderman. Pritchett lost by a small margin.

    THIRTIES
  • 1999
    Age 36
    Stokes was hired in 1999 by Jim Weaver, the new director of athletics at Virginia Tech, to replace the fired Bobby Hussey.
    More Details Hide Details In his first year as coach, Stokes brought the Hokies their first winning season since the departure of Bill Foster but that year would be his high water mark in Blacksburg. Beginning with the 2000-01 season, the Hokies departed the Atlantic 10 conference and joined the much tougher Big East. Stokes was unable to recruit Big East level talent to Virginia Tech and the team's record suffered accordingly. The highlight of his four seasons at Tech were blowout wins over #18 and rival Virginia his final year. Stokes was dismissed after a third straight losing season and a 10-38 overall record in the Big East. In none of these three years in the Big East was Virginia Tech able to qualify for the conference post-season tournament under Stokes.
