Lake Saint Louis Swears In New Aldermen
Two new aldermen and two re-elected incumbents took the oath of office Monday night.
At Lake Saint Louis City Hall Monday night, the old board of aldermen conducted their usual 5:30 p.m. work session and finished in about 30 minutes. Then Mayor Mike Potter recognized the service of two departing aldermen, John Pellerito and Larry DeGroodt.
The first item in new business at the regular 7 p.m. meeting was the swearing-in of four new aldermen.
Incumbent Karen Vennard was re-elected to her seat in Ward 2.
Incumbent Ralph Sidebottom ran unopposed for his Ward 1 seat.
New alderman Richard Morris defeated John Pellerito for a Ward 3 seat.
Tony Zito won the Ward 1 one-year term.
A large audience of family members watched the ceremony, and Mayor Mike Potter called for a break for family and well-wishers to congratulate the new aldermen. "Give 'em all the time they need," Potter said.
