Cape Girardeau banker Robbie Guard won the Ward 4 Cape Girardeau City Council seat Tuesday, with nearly 63 percent of the vote. He defeated Patrick Koetting by a vote of 585 to 336 in the city’s only contested council race. Guard, who has been active in the Cape Girardeau Area Chamber of Commerce, also praised his opponent. He and Koetting respected each other in the race. Guard will replace longtime Councilwoman Loretta Schneider, who is stepping down because of term limits.
