Stalking Horse in Mayoral Race

The St. Louis mayoral race will be taking place next year. A new voting system in which candidates do not run with party labels will take over. I assume that incumbent mayor. Lyda Krewson will run as will Tashara Jones, City Treasurer, and Cara Spencer, Alderman. Good sources tell me that Spencer who I regard as a very able alderman, is a stalking horse for Tashara Jones. The plan is for Spencer to divide the white vote, allowing Jones who is African American a clear path to mayor. This racial dividing has been a common factor in St. Louis mayoral politics for years.Writtenby Paul Dribin
