Building on a background as a public servant, financial services professional, and educator, Tishaura O. Jones was sworn in as Treasurer of St. Louis on January 1, 2013. She is the first woman to hold the office in the history of St. Louis and is running for Mayor of the City of St. Louis.
“I am running for Mayor because I love this City. I am also running for Mayor because this City needs to change. I am not afraid to say that.
I plan on looking at every issue, be it money invested in our parks or tax incentives, through a racial equity lens. We need to be asking if the decisions we make truly help our City, especially those who have been disenfranchised, red lined, and flat out ignored for way too long.”
