St. Louis, Mo. – On Tuesday, a new mayor and four new aldermen will take office in the St. Louis suburb of Sunset Hills.

Their election though not by a landslide was seen as a referendum on the issue of eminent domain. The defeated incumbents supported a failed plan to replace a residential neighborhood with a shopping center.

KWMUs Matt Sepic has a look at what happened in Sunset Hills, and the lessons learned for those involved.
