One item on your April 2013 ballot might be a plan to raise sales taxes across St. Louis to pay for improvements in area parks and at the Gateway Arch.
When the April 2013 election arrives, you might be asked to vote on a potential hike to sales taxes in the city of St. Louis and both St. Louis and St. Charles counties. Keep this in mind.

South County Republicans John Judd and Kurt Witzel were two of Missouri's 10 official Electoral College electors. Find out what that means for the election and for Missouri.
When Missouri cast its 10 official Electoral College votes for presidential candidate Mitt Romney Monday, two of those ten voters were from here in South County. Republicans elected two active party members—John Judd, a Republican committeeman working with state Sen. Jim Lembke and Kurt Witzel, of Oakville, also a Republican committeeman—to cast Missouri's final votes. “You are representing the people of the second district, who happened to vote for—by a 55-44 margin—Mitt Romney over President Obama,” Judd said. “So you feel like you’re keeping your word and honoring commitment and representing people.” Judd was also an elector during the 2000 election, when he got to cast a ballot for Republican President George W.

John Lamping (St. Louis Post-Dispatch) Like many Republicans, state Sen. John Lamping of Ladue was disappointed in the election results in Missouri last week.
