ST. LOUIS - The St. Louis Young Democrats are proud to announce our candidate endorsements for the March 5 municipal primary election.

Following a well attended public forum, members of the St. Louis Young Democrats voted on candidates who completed our survey. For each race, “do not endorse” was also an option. In four races — Board of Aldermen president, Ward 18, Ward 20, Ward 26— no candidate received a majority of the vote in the first round, so a runoff election was held between the top two vote-getters.

“The St. Louis Young Democrats have worked to provide the community with a chance to learn about the candidates who are seeking to lead our city forward. I’m excited about the candidates our members have voted to endorse, and I look forward to working together to elect them in March and April,” said Maggie Lalor, president of the St. Louis Young Democrats.
