Why you should support this campaign

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch endorses Antonio French for Mayor!

"The March 7 mayoral primaries offer St. Louisans a basic choice: Maintain an unacceptable status quo or take a chance on a substantially new direction. Democratic voters’ best option to put our city on a better course is to choose 21st Ward Alderman Antonio French.

We remind readers that this newspaper isn’t in the business of predicting winners or losers. Our job is to interview the candidates and advise the public on the best choice based on their answers, temperament, experience and preparedness.

French, 39, stands out by far among the top tier of candidates for the energy and leadership qualities St. Louisans should demand in their next mayor."

A Mayor for Both Sides of Delmar

Have you seen our latest web video, "A Mayor for Both Sides of Delmar"? Go to www.AntonioFrench.com to watch.

For generations, one street has represented the racial and class divisions in St. Louis -- Delmar Blvd. The Washington Post wrote about "The Delmar Divide" in 2014:

"To get a sense of the fracture that cuts this city in two, drive along Delmar Boulevard, a major four-lane road that runs east to west. Hit the brakes when you see an Aldi grocery store and put your finger on the blinker. Decide which world to enter.

In the blocks to the immediate south: Tudor homes, wine bars, a racquet club, a furniture store selling sofas for $6,000. The neighborhood, according to U.S. Census data, is 70 percent white.

In the blocks to the immediate north: knocked-over street signs, collapsing houses, fluttering trash, tree-bare streets with weeds blooming from the sidewalk. The neighborhood is 99 percent black."

Antonio is running to be a mayor for both sides of Delmar.
