  1. Hear hear! I echo congratulations to Sandi! She worked hard to get elected and will work hard for us on Maplewood City Council.

    • Sophie – Looking at the Brentwood ordinances, I don’t see anything about term limits. There’s this: “Elective officers of the City shall be elected every two (2) years beginning in the year 2015 with the election of a Mayor, Municipal Judge and one (1) Alderman each from Wards 1, 2, 3, and 4. In the year 2016, one (1) Alderman shall be elected each from Wards 1, 2, 3, and 4. The elective officers shall hold office for a term of two (2) years and until his/her successor is elected and qualifies.”

  2. I got a postcard from a man running in my ward. I had never hear of him before today and the fact that he sent me a card and called me by my FIRST name made me NOT vote for hum. He lost. Bummer.
