St. Louis County Councilwoman Kathleen Burkett passes

ST. LOUIS COUNTY (KPLR) - St. Louis County Councilwoman Kathleen Burkett died Sunday morning at the age of 68 after a nearly yearlong battle with cancer. A longtime fixture of the St. Louis County Democratic Party, Burkett was chair of the County Democratic Central Committee through most of the 90's.

During her tenure, she was a fierce opponent of the anti-smoking ban.

County Executive Charlie Dooley praised Burkett as someone who took care of her constituents.
