Saint Louis, MO – St. Louis, Missouri's Board of Alderman voted in
favor of passing Resolution 339 urging "cessation of combat operations
in Iraq and the return of U.S. troops."

co-sponsors and passed with 23 votes.

This makes St. Louis the first city in Missouri to "urge the United
States Congress and the President to immediately commence an orderly
and rapid withdrawal of United States military personnel from Iraq,"
as well as to assist the Iraqi people to rebuild and to redirect
financial resources for war to address public needs within our cities
