  1. That’s great news! St. Louis is a wonderful city in spite of the grim statistics. Best wishes for turning things around!

  2. I am a St. Louis native expat and I say it’s about freakin time! The population is like 65% black. What took so long? Voter disenfranchisement. Hallelujah, there is a God and he loves all His multi-colored children.

    1. You’re not a very smart St.Louis Expat that’s for sure …. Tishaura Jones is the first black woman elected mayor . but St.Louis has had black men mayors who served quite a long time there…

    1. @kathy mcallister not cutting the money, get your poop in a group. Reallocating money from military style policing to working at the cause of crime is just intelligent. Figure it out….

  3. This is amazing news! St. Louis has a bright future to look forward to now! This capable intelligent woman will bring prosperity to St. Louis just like African Americans bring to every community in which they reside. Bravo! Madam Mayor! Bravo!

  4. Thank you African Americans.. You truly are the best among us. Your achievements in science, medicine and especially information technology speak for themselves… Thank you!

    1. @The Epstein Diaries Racist can be fun! I can’t wait to read your book, Simple Social Steps for very Simple Minds…

    2. @Elaine Burnett you only recognize black achievements when they’re made in a typically white domain. Congratulations, first black this or that. Have a cookie. How insulting. I concede their superior athletic ability and rhythm and im racist? Gfys

  5. Congratulations Mayor Jones God bless you citizens of St.Louis City. Crime always rises when Missouri has Republicons in charge at the State Capitol.

  6. Congrats!!! Depression and segregation is the problem!!! Absolutely! Integration and section 8 brings families up.. I live in the best neighborhood and you wouldn’t know who is who because we are all created equal
