ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay is this year’s winner of the Downtown St. Louis Partnership’s Levee Stone Award.
“Downtown has become a neighborhood that we’re all proud of,” the mayor said in his acceptance speech Friday. “Success breeds success.”
Slay received the award at the Partnership’s annual meeting.
The award is given annually to a person or group who has made significant contributions to downtown St. Louis. Last year’s winner was the president of Stifel, Ron Kruszewski.
“Like one stone on a levee, I am one of many people working hard to make downtown more functional and more beautiful,” Slay said.
