“Today is a historic day at the Board of Aldermen. We checked our records and this is the first time the Governor has visited these chambers,” said Board of Aldermen President Lewis Reed.
The Governor joined Mayor Krewson and Mayor James on a tour throughout Missouri. Their first stop was in Kansas City. Today, the stop was in the City of St. Louis. Their next stop will be in southern Missouri.
