2 Incumbents, 1 New Member Elected to F-F School Board; 2 Incumbents Lose In Florissant City Council Races

Incumbents for both the Ferguson-Florissant and Hazelwood School districts Board of Education won relection in Tuesday, April  8th elections, but two incumbents on the Florissant City Council lost their seats to challengers.

Two propositions on ballot in the Black Jack Fire Protection District were passed, one easily and  the other much closer. Prop. B, a $5.3 million bond issue for upgrades, was approved 2,349 to 916. The 40-cent levy increase for an ambulance and defibrillator program  won 1939-1308.

Incumbents Rob Chabot and Paul Morris were reelected in the hotly contested Ferguson-Florissant board race that had the suspension and later resignation of superintendent Art McCoy as a major issue in the campaign.  One of the three candidates with the Citizens for Educational and Community Change that supported McCoy gained the second most votes in the race.  Donna Paulette-Thurman had 2733 votes, just behind Chabot with 2898 and just ahead of Morris who had 2516 votes.
