The November presidential election is still more than four weeks away but already the March 2013 primary race for St. Louis mayor has begun.
On Wednesday Aldermanic President Lewis Reed announced what many had long suspected — he’s running for mayor against three-term incumbent Francis Slay.
Only one St. Louis mayor has ever run for a fourth 4-year term, that was Raymond Tucker.
If Slay wins reelection next year it’ll be one for the record books. The two times Slay has been reelected (2005 & 2009) he had weak challengers, so 2013 will be different.
For the poll this week I want to know your thoughts on this competitive race. The poll is in the right sidebar, mobile users switch to the desktop layout.
I wish both men the best of luck.
