Cara in the News

  • Being and feeling safe is a fundamental right.

    Crime in St. Louis leads the nation. We have failed to include those most impacted at the table when making these mitigation decisions. Under Cara's leadership, we will no longer come at this from two sides – we will work collaboratively to build trust and deliver results.

  • Every child deserves a path to success.

    Educating our youth is crucial to the long-term success of any city. Families continue to leave St. Louis to seek education opportunities for their children. We can make St. Louis a place families want to raise their children.

  • St. Louis is a great city that deserves an inclusive leader.

    Our city won't be fixed on Twitter. It’s time to do the real work of rebuilding trust in our government. As your mayor Cara will proudly lead that effort.
