So are you going to print the name of this woman? It's not a national-security secret. Everyone should read Councilperson Rhoades "An Open Letter" sent March 28, a week before the election. My guess is she'd be more than happy to share it on Creve Coeur Patch.

well, it should be no surprise that Barry Glantz is once again trying to shimmy under the scrutiny of all. I can absolutely assure you that from his very first campaign for City Council that he outright LIED about who had given him money for his campaign. How about a $5000.00 contribution from a CC Developer which Glantz reported as his own money. In those days, Glantz didn't have an extra $50 bucks much less $5000. T'was not his own money....was he influenced by Developers, by Dielmann, and his friends...DUH! Previous MO Ethics REPORTS were filed. Good luch on the currrent one. Former Mayor Sue Baum....I brought this guy into CC Politics, it may have been my worst mistake. Sorry, friends.
