The St. Louis Board of Aldermen is back at full strength.
Former state Representative Chris Carter took the oath of office Friday at City Hall. Carter won a special election last week to finish the term of his late uncle, Ald. Gregory Carter, who died in a tractor trailer accident in August.
Family, friends and colleagues gathered outside the brick headquarters of the 27th Ward Thursday night to remember the man who had represented the area for the last 13 years.
Ald. Gregory Carter was killed Aug. 1 when the UPS tractor trailer he was driving was involved in a multi-vehicle accident in St. Charles County. He was 54, and leaves behind a wife and two children, as well as two brothers, a sister, and his father.
