One candidate, St. Louis Alderman Fred Wessels, had been concerned because initially it appeared that access to the list might be controlled by one of his rivals: St. Louis Democratic Party chairman Brian Wahby.

The race for St. Louis city treasurer is getting crowded.

This article first appeared in the St. Louis Beacon, Dec. 12, 2011 - St. Louis Democratic Party chairman Brian Wahby is officially launching his campaign for city treasurer today, saying that his previous experience in the post will allow him to quickly "clean up the mess'' created by some current employees in the office and, in his view, ignored by veteran incumbent city Treasurer Larry Williams.
