August 02, 2018 - 9:47 am

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - One of the races for St. Louis County Council just got smaller. It's the fifth district, in mid- and south-county.  Michael Burton, whose champion cause was saving Tower Tee, says he's now endorsing fellow Democrat Lisa Clancy.

“Lisa is currently pulling higher than myself, and I’m deeply concerned about splitting the vote, which would let Mr. Dolan sit in that seat for another four years,” he says.

Burton's name will stay on the ballot. The incumbent councilman is Pat Dolan. Burton's from Affton, Clancy's from Maplewood and Dolan is from Richmond Heights.
