David Caldwell has been a fixture at Creve Coeur government meetings in recent years, but he could be interested in taking a spot on the dais instead of speaking from the audience.
Caldwell, the editor of CreveCoeurVoter.com and currently a Trustee for the city's Employee Pension Fund Board, announced he was considering a run in Ward 1 on his website last weekend.
Caldwell has been outspoken on a wide variety of issues, from zoning to the city's collection of property taxes and use of city surplus funds.
Current Ward 1 Councilwoman Beth Kistner is bound by term limits and cannot run for re-election.
Ward 2 Councilwoman Tara Nealey has not fully announced her intentions but has been operating under the belief she will run again. Ward 3 Councilwoman Charlotte D'Alfonso and Ward 4 Councilman Scott Saunders have told Patch they plan to run for second terms.
Wednesday is the first day prospective candidates for April's election can pick up petitions from the city clerk's office. The filing period starts December 11 and ends January 15.
Editor's Note: Mr. Caldwell has in the past been an occasional Creve Coeur Patch blogger, but his website is not affiliated with Patch.com. Anyone in the community, including candidates for, and holders of elective office are welcome to use the Patch blogging platform.
