Mayoral Initiatives | Francis G. Slay
Mayoral Initiatives under the administration of Francis G. Slay from 2001-2017
Since being sworn into office in April 2001, Mayor Slay made it his goal to make St. Louis a better place to live. In addition to the Mayor's nationally-acclaimed "Lead Safe St. Louis" program that reduced childhood lead poisoning rates by more than 80%, St. Louis' 10 Year Plan to End Chronic Homelessness is viewed as a national model. Mayor Slay was a champion for free, public Charter schools to ensure that parents could make good choices for their children's education.
Mayor Slay also worked to make the City more livable. By working with the Police Department on a campaign to curb car break-ins and instituting various healthy living and "green" initiatives, Mayor Slay ensured the City of St. Louis will be a great place to live for generations to come.
