Ending weeks of speculation, a press release was sent out Thursday evening announcing that State Senator Maida Coleman will officially file papers to run for mayor on Friday.
From the press release:
“Under the current administration, St. Louis has been named the most dangerous city in the US. St. Louis Public Schools have been taken over by the state, jobs are disappearing in droves and the city has become more polarized than ever. I believe St. Louis deserves a Mayor who wants to represent the whole community and not simply a small portion”, stated Coleman.
As Mayor, Senator Coleman says that she also looks forward to working towards making St. Louis a safer and more inclusive place to live, work and raise a family.
