VICTORY: DFA celebrates Tishaura Jones’ win in Democratic primary for St. Louis Treasurer
Earlier this morning, Tishaura Jones won the Democratic primary in her bid to be reelected Treasurer of the City of St. Louis, MO.
Democracy for America endorsed Jones’ bid for reelection in May. In 2017, DFA supported Jones in her race for Mayor of St. Louis.
DFA CEO Yvette Simpson on Tishuara Jones’ primary victory in the race for Treasurer of St. Louis, MO:
“Tishuara Jones’ record pushing for reform, delivering for working families, and standing up for our shared progressive values earned her this resounding primary victory in her bid to be reelected Treasurer of the City of St. Louis.
“From working to ban the box that prevents so many with a criminal record from getting a job with the city departments she runs, to ensuring that every employee she supervises gets at least a living wage of $15/hour, Tishura Jones has led the City of St. Louis’ Treasurers’ Office as a progressive champion and we can’t wait to see what she does next.
“Democracy for America was honored to stand with Tishuara in this reelection primary bid and we look forward to working with and supporting her for many, many years to come.” -- Yvette Simpson, Chief Executive Officer, Democracy for America
