St. Louis Post-Dispatch on Ward 2 race with Green Party's Elston McCowan
Rev. Elston McCowan, the Green Party candidate, said he’s the best candidate for the job because of his long history of advocating for people living in the ward.
McCowan is a pastor at the Star of Grace Missionary Baptist Church and the vice president of the St. Louis city chapter of the NAACP, where he chairs the criminal justice and prison committees.
He cites his efforts to deal with food supply issues in north St. Louis by building community gardens, his advocacy for better treatment of prisoners and his experience working as a social worker and a union representative.
“Having a large workload has never bothered me,” he said. “The theme of my campaign is strong and effective leadership.”
