Statement from Mayor Lyda Krewson on Passage of Proposition P

By passing Prop P we took a step toward making a safer St. Louis a reality

November 7, 2017 | 2 min reading time

Congratulations and thank you to everyone who voted "Yes" on Prop P today. Thank you to the Board of Aldermen, the donors and the hardworking campaign team that worked to get this passed.

This vote will provide a needed boost to our Police Department, our Fire Department, the Circuit Attorney's Office and to our young people.

By passing Prop P we took a step toward making a safer St. Louis a reality. Because of your vote today, our women and men in uniform will get a much-deserved raise, making their salaries competitive with officers in the County, and making sure that we can attract and retain the best officers.

I recognize that we can't arrest our way to a safer city, and I'm thrilled that voters agree. Passing Prop P means we can make significant investments on the prevention side, with funding for afterschool and summer job programs, recreation, social and mental health services and also demolishing vacant buildings.
