Why you should support Antonio French

Antonio French is the leader St. Louis needs now. He would make a fantastic mayor for St. Louis. Show your support to encourage him to enter the race! As a St. Louis alderman, Antonio French has been earning local accolades such as "Best Local Politician" for his work including opening the O'Fallon Park Recreation Center; installing security cameras to deter crime; and opening North Campus, dedicated to providing kids in North St. Louis with enriching experiences and a world-class education.

Alderman French became nationally known following the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. His social media posts reached over 130,000 followers. In national television interviews, he helped the world understand what was happening as this moment became a movement. We need his perspective and leadership now more than ever.

Finally, his work to create a Civilian Review Board for police action demonstrates the kind of community-based, forward-thinking leadership we can expect from Antonio French. Let’s encourage Alderman French to bring that leadership to the office of mayor.

Washington University student newspaper profiles Antonio

"French used his Twitter account to create a window into the unrest in Ferguson in August of 2014, gaining national media coverage for his tweets and videos. Almost two years later, on Aug. 18, he used that same account to announce his tentative plan for a mayoral campaign.

French, who graduated from Washington University’s Executive Business MBA program in November of 2014, began his tentative campaign following St. Louis mayor Francis Slay’s announcement that he would not be seeking a fifth term in the next mayoral election in 2017."

In The News: French's After-School Program

Antonio French gets things done. That's one of the reasons he'd make a great mayor.

Many of you know about the great organization he created several years ago called North Campus. If you aren't familiar with the program which serves hundreds of kids every day, learn more at www.northcampus.org. Well, this week was the first week of school in St. Louis. And North Campus was preparing its locations for its popular after-school programs when Mother Nature unleashed flash floods on the city causing damage at North Campus locations. But Alderman French and his team refused to let their students down by missing the first day of school.

Local TV station KSDK reported on how Antonio French and North Campus worked to make sure their buildings were ready for kids. Check it out: http://www.ksdk.com/news/local/storm-damages-after-school-center/298653805

St. Louis needs a mayor who gets it. Antonio French knows the importance of education in a kid's life. He supports public education and created an incredible program that works with St. Louis Public Schools to help make kids successful. And most importantly, he gets things done. That's the kind of mayor we need in St. Louis.

We're just getting started!

Thank you to everyone who has made a pledge to encourage Antonio French to run for Mayor of St. Louis. The outpouring of support online and on the streets has been incredible. But we're just getting started.

Candidates for mayor don't file to run until November, but there are several candidates already publicly saying they're running and even more saying they're thinking about it. That means we need to help build enough financial support for Antonio to show he is the strongest candidate!

Here's what you can do:

1) Pledge again! If you've pledged $5 before, pledge another $10 today.

2) Spread the word! Get your friends and family to pledge 10 bucks. Post on Twitter and Facebook.

3) Recruit large pledges! Keep in mind: there are no campaign limits in this race. Other candidates in this race will receive checks for $50,000... $100,000... maybe even $1,000,000. That's the nature of politics in Missouri today. That's what we're up against. But we know people too. We know progressive artists, tech leaders, and business people who want change -- who know that we need leaders in cities like St. Louis who aren't afraid to stand up for real reform.

This race will have national consequences. St. Louis is the birthplace of the modern Black Lives Matter movement. Antonio French was there every step of the way. In 2014, St. Louis became the poster child of police militarization and the disconnect between communities and the people hired to police them. As mayor, Antonio French will help change that narrative. He will help make St. Louis a model for how cities can reform, how accountability and transparency lead to safer cities, how trust can be rebuilt between police departments and communities of color.

You're a part of this campaign. Let's make it happen.
