St. Louis County Councilwoman Kathleen Burkett has died. After a nearly year-long battle with cancer, the 68 year old Burkett passed away at her Overland home Sunday morning.
Burkett had represented the 2nd Council District since 2002. She had been a longtime fixture of the St. Louis County Democratic Party, and had chaired the County's Democratic Central Committee through most of the 1990s.
During her tenure, she was a fierce opponent of the anti-smoking ban and was well known for her outspoken demeanor.
County Executive Charlie Dooley issued a statement Sunday praising Burkett as someone who took care of her constituents "like they were her own family."
A special election to fill her seat will be held as part of the November 4th general election.
