Violet Files for Re-Election to St. Peters Board of Aldermen

Terri Violet is first in line to file for the St. Peters Ward 3 seat. Michelle Walker is her only challenger so far after the first day of filing.

For the third straight spring Terri Violet will be running for a seat on the Board of Aldermen. 

Violet was the first person in line Tuesday morning . Violet said she spent 26 hours at City Hall—including camping out on a chilly St. Peters night—in order to get her name on the ballot. 

The current Ward 3 representative is no stranger to the spring elections. Violet ran against Gus Elliott in 2011 and in a three-way race against Tommy Roberts and Burton Biermann in 2012. She lost both times, however she didn't fade from the public eye. 

When Elliott resigned in September, Violet was the choice of Mayor Len Pagano to fill out the term until the April election. The winner of the Ward 3 seat will fill out the final two years of Elliott's term. 

Violet won't be running unopposed. Michelle Walker also threw her her into the ring. Walker, who was critical of Violet's appointment, is a first-time candidate. 

The Ward 3 seat is the lone aldermanic opening on the ballot in St. Peters. The filing process began Tuesday at 8 a.m. and ends at 5 p.m. on Jan. 15, 2013. Interested candidates can file between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday except on holidays.
