The measure passed with roughly 60% of the vote during Tuesday’s Special Election. Mayor Lyda Krewson said she appreciates the support from the voters on this ballot issue, “I’m so thrilled that the voters of the City of St. Louis reaffirmed their confidence in our police department, fire department, and also in the recreation programs, after school jobs that were on the ballot. So we’re thrilled and appreciate their support.”
