New Ward Map Passes Board of Alderman

New Ward Map Passes Board of Alderman

The St. Louis Board of Aldermen assigned ward numbers and passed a ward map today, BB 101. Candidates will run for 2 year terms in odd-numbered wards and for 4 year terms in even-numbered wards in 2023. After that even and odd wards will have elections every four years as their terms come up.

NextSTL – Ready, Set, Redistrict!

It was a priority to put whole neighborhoods in a single ward or at worst two wards.

The reduction in wards from 28 to 14 puts some aldermen in the same ward. We shall see who chooses to run again.

I’m happy with my new ward. I thought DeBaliviere Place, Skinker DeBaliviere, and West End should be in the same ward as their fortunes are more tied together than say Skinker DeBaliviere and the CWE. The neighborhoods are working together to bridge the Delmar Divide; a ward spanning it will help.

What do you think of your new ward?
