The bill passed with only three votes to spare so Gatschenberger's vote carried more meaning than many of his more perfunctory votes.
Gatschenberger's home city of Wentzville
purposefully got rid of its red-light cameras in the past year because there was little to no support for them in the community. His vote in favor of red-light cameras yesterday would appear to be a strange move given that he is currently running for a senate seat serving the City of Wentzville.
Gatschenberger's senatorial opponents are Bob Onder and Vicki Scneider.
The New Wentzvillian has contacted Rep. Gatschenberger, but has yet to receive a response.
