Stephen Martin vies for the position of Wentzville Municipal Judge.
Stephen Martin, the former prosecuting attorney for the City of Kansas City, said he has a long list, as well as 25 years of experience, which make him the right candidate for the position as municipal judge in the City of Wentzville. He has served as an attorney representing police and sheriff’s departments in various municipalities, and he has a clear understanding of both the political and judicial system. His experience as an attorney spans the gamut, including government contracts, real estate law, eminent domain, land use and zoning, along with state, and local and municipal law. He has never run for political office, but was prompted to run because he felt there was a need to make a change for the city, Martin said. Martin has been …

The longtime area lawyer believes his military experience and legal career make him the right person for the job.
Joel Eisenstein, a twice-decorated veteran of the Vietnam War and a recipient of the Purple Heart, believes there is one solid reason he should be Wentzville’s next municipal judge. "Because I’m the most qualified candidate," he said. Eisenstein, who lives in O’Fallon, is running against incumbent Mike Carter and challengers Andrew Koor, Michael Kruse and Stephen Martin. Jay Lenox has withdrawn from the race, although his name will remain on the ballot. Eisenstein, 65, began his career as a clerk for a federal appellate judge. He spent two years as an assistant prosecuting attorney in St. Charles County, also serving as a special prosecutor in the counties of Lincoln, Montgomery and Warren. Eisenstein was a city attorney and a city …

Cannot remove name from ballot, but will not campaign for office.
The field of candidates for municipal judge in Wentzville just got smaller. Candidate Jay Lenox told the Board of Aldermen that he was not going to campaign for the office.

It is too late to remove Lenox's name from the ballot. The election is Tuesday, April 5. Lenox, an attorney at Niedner, Bodeux, Carmichael, Huff, Lenox and Pashos in St. Charles, said he entered the race because he didn't like the direction the courts were heading in. "I think the city should have an honest, ethical, fair and impartial judge," he said. After reviewing the large field, Lenox said …
