Odd are good that Patrick Barclay will remain on the St. Peters Board of Aldermen.
Barclay, who has been serving Ward 4 since 2002, is running unopposed in the upcoming election. Still, to get on the Board, he needs at least one vote at the April 3 General Election, which is why he decided to answer some questions from Patch. Here are his answers.
