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.
State Rep. Chris Carter won a special election on Tuesday to fill the seat left open on the St. Louis Board of Aldermen after his uncle, Alderman Greg Carter, died in a traffic accident two months ago.
Carter said it’s a bitter sweet victory and his first order of business is to tackle what he views as a cycle of joblessness and crime in his ward.
