FERGUSON, Mo. (KMOX) - If anyone is gaining respect for their role dealing with the situation in Ferguson, it’s St. Louis Alderman Antonio French.

That’s according to University of Missouri St. Louis Political Scientist Dave Robertson.

Robertson tells KMOX’s Hancock and Kelley that French has been fair minded and balanced.

“But also a strong advocate for raising questions about what happened in Ferguson, a strong advocate for the people of Ferguson and a strong advocate for justice in the process,” he says.

Robertson says French has an emerging regional and national reputation.
