Vote St Louis – November 02, 2016 Voters here could chart course of county government for years

The showdown next week between Ernie Trakas and Patricia “Pat” Yaeger for the 6th District County Council seat, or the “mayor of south county,” could chart the course of county government for years.

If Oakville attorney Trakas, a Republican, defeats former Rep. Yaeger, D-Lemay, in the Tuesday, Nov. 8 election, the council’s balance of power would decisively shift away from legislators allied with County Executive Steve Stenger toward those more opposed to his initiatives.

The independence of south county’s next legislator is the biggest question on the minds of 6th District voters, Yaeger said at an Oct. 20 South County Chamber of Commerce forum in Sunset Hills. She is endorsed by Stenger.
