Former Supreme Court Judge And An Attorney Picked For St. Louis County Police Board

St. Louis County Executive Sam Page nominated two new members to the five-person Board of Police Commissioners on Friday.

Page picked former Missouri Supreme Court Judge Ray Price and local attorney Michelle Schwerin. The lawyers are meant to replace Laurie Westfall, the widow of former County Executive Buzz Westfall, and Roland Corvington, a former FBI agent who stepped down from the police board earlier in the week.

The nominations still need confirmation by the county council. Neither nominee could be reached for comment Friday.

Page has said he was looking to replace police board members for a number of weeks, but he stepped up efforts over the past few days after a jury awarded a gay police officer $20 million in a discrimination lawsuit.
