Is Elston McCowan crazy to think that he can actually defeat Democratic Party candidates by running on the Green Party ticket in a St. Louis ward that is 95% black? Maybe not, since in 2015 he received 37% of the vote in Ward 2 against the incumbent. Host Don Fitz and guest Rev. Elston McCowan discuss how the theme “Strong and Effective Leadership” refers to loss of City funds for Ward 2 due to Democratic Party bosses not standing up for their constituents. Rev. McCowan intends to obtain City funding for cleaning up alleys, improving parks and helping elders receive financing for home energy efficiency. He has experience teaching gardening in schools and will combat “food deserts” by bringing shops with healthy food to the ward. The special election for Ward 2 is Tuesday, November 7, 2017.
