Mr. Paul, Congratulations on the win. I sincerely wish you the best for the city and all who work and live here. But right after you get done patting yourself on your back I think you owe Charles Pavlack a big thanks. If it wasn’t for his rant here the other day, saying ” The thought of Adam Paul as mayor of Ellisville frightens me. In the extreme” we might be congratulating Michelle on her win. So next time you see him, heck maybe tonight, shake his hand, have a big smile and say thanks couldn’t have done it without you. As for Michelle, I’m not sure how you should convey your feelings to Charles…. Maybe a kick somewhere…. Just kidding All the Best, John

My Brother Adam Paul was just elected Mayor of Ellisville, MO. First one ever in the family to run for any political office!!!!!!!

Congratulations Adam. I hope the current council members who are leaning towards a "Yes" vote on the Walmart TIF understand that your election is the equivalent of a referendum on "Welfare for the Wealthy." Perhaps we can gain some "moral high ground" by not destroying affordable housing, spending $370,000 in taxpayer subsidies for every retail job created and ending the pointless, TIF lobbing inter-tribal warfare between municipalities that only benefit the arms dealers (Big Box stores and their developers.)

Robert: Thank you for running. Hope you consider serving in some other capacity.

I agree E. Schmidt! No to Wal-Mart!

Good Job Mayor Paul, sorry Mr. Compton did not win but he really did not try very hard.
