Ward Update

Residents can use a wide assortment of resources to get news and updates about what’s happening in St. Peters. A lot of people subscribe to our monthly UpFront e-newsletter, and homes and businesses throughout the City receive our My Hometown magazine in the mail. And these days, people can get a lot of information from my Facebook page. However, I wanted to make sure everyone knew there is another place that many people might not know exists.


Each quarter two members of the Board of Aldermen get interviewed on our government-access channel. Mayor Pagano also takes part by letting everyone know of some current events in our community.  It’s called “Ward Update” and it can be seen on ATT Uverse and Spectrum. If you don’t have cable, we also have a link on our city web page. Log onto and click on “SPTV” on the bottom left corner. After that, in the middle of the page, you’ll see several of the most recent editions.


I just finished my interview and it’s now airing for you to watch. In it, I talk about many things. Included was working with my good friend Don Aytes over the past 12 years on the Board and what my new partner Nick Trupiano and I are currently doing in Ward 4. Also, we discuss new residential and commercial developments, plus how we were able to fill up some of the empty store fronts in the southern part of the City. Finally, I mention recycling with the new Blue Cart Crew program and things the Parks, Recreation & Arts Advisory Board participate in.


If I can ever be of service to you, feel free to contact me any time. My cell phone number is 636-795-8255 if you need to talk or send a text. Additionally, you can send a note to my new email address or send me a private message on Facebook. You can either search for me or log onto Each day I post news and important information about things regarding “Our Hometown.”


Thank you for your continued support. It’s an honor and a privilege to represent you on the St. Peters Board of Aldermen.


‘The King of Cardboard’

An end of an era just occurred. My good friend and Ward 4 partner, Don Aytes, retired from the St. Peters Board of Aldermen. He’ll leave behind a great legacy. His effect on so many aspects in the community will be felt for many years to come. One of the biggest is his dedication and commitment to the recycling program here in the City. Don would go out and put staff in contact with new businesses that he spoke to about bringing their boxes and containers to us. He was also instrumental in working with the Health and Environment Services department on the placement of dozens of drop-off dumpsters to make it easier for residents to recycle big pieces of cardboard that wouldn’t fit in their trashcan. No longer did people have to drive all the way up to the recycle plant. There are many reasons he was bestowed the title of “The King of Cardboard”. These are just a few, and I wish I had the space to tell you more.

Don will also be missed because he had a passion to be very personable with the residents. He took the time to listen and try and help them in any way he could. We were a perfect match because both of us always put those living in our ward first in everything we did. I’m sure that on some occasions I’ll still call him to get his opinion and help on various things happening in the City. This is because over his 30 years in office he has accumulated so much knowledge and experience on a wide variety of issues.

With the April election over, the voters have elected a new partner to work with me in Ward 4. I’d like to wish Nick Trupiano all the best as he starts his term as alderman. I’ve known him for many years and believe he’ll be an asset to the Board. His time as a member of several city commissions will help him with his new duties right away. Again, I want to wish Don a happy retirement and Nick success in his new role in St. Peters.
