Students at Oakville Elementary participate in ‘Kids Voting’ for the November 2018 election.

These are final unofficial election results for South County, with 100 percent of precincts reporting. Look for continuing coverage this week online and in print.

The Mehlville School District’s Proposition S bond issue passed with 80 percent of the vote, as did Hancock Place School District’s Proposition R bond issue. For Mehlville, this marked the first time voters passed a bond issue since 1992. The district had been the only one in St. Louis County without a bond issue to fund facilities. The campaign committee supporting the ballot measure, the Mehlville-Oakville United Committee, posted on Facebook, “Prop S is a resounding victory with more than 80% of the vote. Our community came together for our schools and our kids. Voters, THANK YOU!”

Bonnie Stegman was re-elected to a fourth term on the Mehlville Fire Protection District’s Board of Directors over challenger Fred Baumgarth. She was first elected in 2005.

Green Park Mayor Tim Thuston was re-elected to a second two-year term over challenger Michael Broughton, a Ward 1 alderman.

In races for the Sunset Hills Board of Aldermen, Christine Lieber won in Ward 2, Randy Epperson won in Ward 3 and Fred Daues won in Ward 4.
