He strives to make sure municipal court is "more accessible to the people it serves."
Incumbent Wentzville judge Michael E. Carter, seeking a second two-year term in the April 5 election, believes a judge should be aware of the community’s needs. "I have a lot of ideas about what a judge means to a community," he said.

Carter, who lives in St. Peters, is running against challengers Andrew Koor, Joel Eisenstein, Michael Kruse and …
