ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) — It was moving day Thursday for State Senator Jamilah Nasheed and a day of resigning as a party committeewoman.
Redistricting last year forced Nasheed, D-St. Louis, to move from the 21st Ward to the 18th Ward. As a result she resigned as committeewoman of the 21st ward.
She won that office last year, and at the same time beat out two others for Missouri’s 5th District State Senate Seat.
Nasheed said it’s important to live in the district that she represents so the packed up her things and moved earlier than she needed to.
“I’m moving out pretty early, but I think its the right thing to do,” she told KMOX.
She didn’t have to move until three-years-before-the next election.
