Antonio French cares about people. He's dedicated his life to improving the lives of the people of St. Louis. Serving on the Board of Aldermen for 8 years, Antonio has been one of the most outspoken leaders in our city on the issues of crime and public safety; economic and racial disparity; and repairing the broken relationship between police and the black community.
Antonio was born and raised in St. Louis. A graduate of CBC High School, Antonio grew up in the O'Fallon Park neighborhood in north St. Louis, where he lives today with his wife, Jasenka and 6-year-old son, Dominik. Jasenka was born in Sarajevo, Bosnia and came to St. Louis in 1994. Antonio and Jasenka are proud public school parents.
Antonio believes our city is at a crossroads. "After years of population decline, we now have an opportunity to make our city a place people are moving to instead of moving from," said French. "It starts with reducing crime and improving the quality of life in all of our neighborhoods -- north and south."
"I'm running to be a mayor for both sides of Delmar. To bring our city together to start making our neighborhoods among the best places in America to raise a family."
