I want to thank all who attended our first meet and greet of the campaign. We had a packed event and it was a pleasure to meet new friends and neighbors. I want to extend special thanks to Mary Samuelson, proprietor and chef extraordinaire of Mama Josephine’s for hosting the event and cooking some delicious food.
“St. Louisan, Kevin McKinney, recently attended the dedication of the McKinney Cultural Arts Center in Jonesborough, Tenn. The center is dedicated to his late father, Ernest Mckinney Sr., who served as the first African-American elected to the city’s Board of Alderman. Kevin was later elected as Jonesborough’s first African-American Mayor. The center will house cultural, educational, enrichment and community programs.”
