“Local politics affect your life daily,” she said. “Campaigning was hard for me this time because I have had some personal loss, but I appreciate how the voters responded. I will try to do an excellent job.”

Grant and Miracle said they both understand the growth of Edwardsville but want to make sure it doesn’t lose its “small-town feel” in the process.

Miracle said she is thrilled to have the opportunity to represent Ward 3.

“I look forward to working with the City Council, the mayor, and staff to make Edwardsville a place where we can all enjoy living,” she said. “Edwardsville is a place that makes me proud. I have raised my children in the Edwardsville School District and there are some amazing people here. I do want to make sure Edwardsville continues to grow, but in a thoughtful and responsible way.”
