Maplewood resident, Lisa Clancy on Jan. 1 took the oath to represent St. Louis County District 5 in the county council. Clancy defeated incumbent Pat Dolan, taking 58 percent of the vote in the August primary election.
Fox 2 reported on Jan. 2: “Clancy promises to fight for fairness and equity and said that’s what her constituents have said they want to see. She said several people have asked her if she’ll be siding with St. Louis County Executive Steve Stenger or with the majority of the council. Clancy said she doesn’t believe it’s an either/or situation. She said, ‘I’m going to be forging a way for myself and at the center of all that will be the people that I represent.'”
It was one of the greatest honors of my life to be sworn in to St. Louis County Council this morning. We have big & important work ahead as we push for equity & justice. I’m ready to get down to it in service to you, St. Louis County, and our whole region. ONWARD, TOGETHER. pic.twitter.com/dxioEfU5IT
