Last Wednesday, on Feb. 22, St. Louis Public Radio, in collaboration with 13 other community and media organizations, hosted a mayoral forum with six candidates who qualified ahead of the March primary. Joining the forum were: Antonio French (D), Lewis Reed (D) Lyda Krewson (D), Jeffrey Boyd (D), Tishaura Jones (D) and Andrew Jones (R).
Journalists Rachel Lippmann and Jason Rosenbaum of St. Louis Public Radio alongside Rebecca Rivas of the St. Louis American asked questions of the candidates. Ruth Ezell of the Nine Network of Public Media moderated the forum.
