Tishaura Jones has been the treasurer for the city of St. Louis since first being elected in 2012. Prior to that she served in the Missouri House of Representatives. She was also one of the leading Democratic primary candidates in the race for mayor of St. Louis in 2017. She was gracious enough to welcome me into her office today, and spoke with me at length about her experiences being black in America, growing up in St. Louis, being a single mother, and what she's doing as treasurer to help the people of the city of St. Louis.
