It was a long primary season with many surprises from all sides of the political spectrum in the City. The Primary season was one that we will not forget for a while in more ways than one. Some from Candidate mishaps and some from Candidates high points in their campaigns. Today, Lyda Krewson won the Democratic Nomination by a VERY Small margin (888 Votes ahead of Tishaura Jones). She will join Republican Andrew Jones, Libertarian Robb Cunningham, Green Jonathan McFarland as well as Independents Kacey Cordes and Larry Rice on the April Ballot.
But for us here at Building St. Louis News, we want change that can be delivered in a way that brings people together of all stripes. It's the only way to really bring together this deeply divided City. Things need to change. The current establishment in the City is not going to help the citizens of the City at all. The next Mayor needs to work with the many new and old members of the Board of Aldermen to bring resources, care and development to both sides of Delmar in all 79 Unique Neighborhoods of the City. We need a Mayor who will help get Public-Police relations up and a government where anything is accessible (Transparency). Her name WILL be on the April Ballot.
We decided to choose the candidate who meets the criteria of being a outsider who wants the best for the City and its its citizens. We also wanted to support a Candidate that will not only attempt to shake up City Hall but also would shake the corruption and issues ultimately out of the City to make it a better place. Over all, we especially wanted a candidate that is truthful and quick to the point when it comes down to plans for his or her administration. When it goes down to police, we wanted a candidate who wants to reform the police department to where they will help restore police-community relations as well as get the respect they deserve.
That is why we Endorse Independent Candidate Kacey Cordes Mahrt.
Kacey has shown through her plans on her website, kc4stl.com, that she is ready to lead the City in a new direction. One that includes EVERYONE and not just a select few. Her bid aims to upset politics as usual in the City and return St. Louis to a City that every citizens loves despite of their religion, race or political background. Being a Independent Candidate in St. Louis brings serious change that is needed. By making the City Non-Partisan in a way, more can get done and agreements can be made faster. Also being a non-partisan city opens up new doors for those who are aspiring to become a Voice for the Citizens at City Hall.
We also decided on her for her new ideas. Kacey's ideas bring in a new era for St. Louis is she has the chance to lead. Kacey will be a voice for all St. Louisans and we HIGHLY Encourage everyone to vote for her who wants change in this City. But why should you vote for Kacey Cordes? Well the Answer is simple... If you want a Mayor that works for you, the citizen and tax payer of the City of St. Louis, she is you candidate. Kacey only wants the best for everyone in the City, therefore, she is the only Mayor Candidate who had made it clear. She doesn't want big money backing her like other candidates and even insists on giving money to a charity of our choice if you are willing to contribute to her.
For those who believe she has no chance at winning the office of the Mayor in this City, they are wrong. She has a chance. Kacey even has a great chance at winning if everyone is the City would look past the Political Wall and look at the person who wants to be your Mayor. It's time we end the Democratic Establishment here in St. Louis and by doing so, a better way of life will come about for every citizen. And by having a government that is ran by Independents, more Progress can be made eventually leading to Prosperity (Which is what this City needs).
This Endorsement decision was tough with all the great candidates out there but we believe that Kacey Cordes is the person for this job specifically. Our reasons are backed up in the information above.
Want to show Kacey that you support her too? Go to her website kc4stl.com and Follow her on Twitter and Instagram @KC4STL. And join her, us and others in voting for her on April 4th. Bring your Friends, Family and Neighbors to vote that day for Independent Kacey Cordes Mahrt! You will be happy that you did! A Vote for Kacey is a vote for Progress, Prosperity and Peace in all 79 Neighborhoods of St. Louis which benefits everyone. We also would like to encourage the newly elected and re-elected Board of Aldermen Members and other Public Officials (Political Party Doesn't Matter) to support Kacey on her quest to become the Mayor for all people!
⚜️Kacey has a big chance to win if she can get the voters out who are angry of Krewson's Victory. The 69% Voting Block in the City who didn't vote for Lyda are looking for a alternative candidate and we believe Kacey is the Candidate for them.⚜️
