Nelson to seek sixth term on board

St. Louis County Commissioner Keith Nelson

With the rising opioid crisis and out-of-home placements in St. Louis County, the region needs commissioners ready to dig down to the root of the issue and find sensible solutions. In St. Louis County District 6, Keith Nelson of Fayal Township is already well-informed and heavily involved in the issue and others around the county.

Combating rising placements should continue to be a priority around the county. Two years ago the county board faced the issue head on, requiring it to bite the bullet on property tax increases for residents to go toward more social workers and intervention employees.
