Greater St. Louis, Inc. Congratulates Mayor-Elect Tishaura Jones
Today, the citizens of the City of St. Louis elected their 47th mayor, Tishaura O. Jones. I congratulate my friend and look forward to working with her to move our City and region forward. We have a once-in-a-generation opportunity, as the world emerges from a pandemic that changed nearly every facet of business, healthcare, and daily life, to grow and create more opportunities for all.
St. Louis is poised for growth. We have the assets and energy for transformative change. We have seen it firsthand in the response to the 2030 Jobs Plan, the first metro-scale jobs plan in more than a decade and which centers inclusive growth.
Our team looks forward to working with Mayor-Elect Jones. Partnership and collaboration across the public and private sectors will be critical to ensuring that we maximize St. Louis’ potential. Mayor-Elect Jones, congratulations on your victory. We celebrate this historic moment as you become the first Black woman to serve as Mayor of the City of St. Louis.
