City Treasurer Tishaura Jones hosting virtual ward tours to reach voters during campaign
ST. LOUIS – Tishaura Jones has served as the St. Louis City Treasurer since 2013. She’s running for reelection but says getting her message and examples of success out to the public has been challenging during the COVID-19 outbreak.
“When we were stuck in our houses in March, we did a virtual ward tour, where each night we would pick a ward and their committee people and aldermen and do Zoom meetings for those to participate,” she said.
Jones says her campaign has been able to speak to 30,000 voters during the campaign despite COVID.
“We have been calling not just to ask for support but also to ask people how they are doing and offer tips for survival,” she said.
Jones is also trying to reach voters with a drive-thru event this Friday.
