It’s time

Good morning, everyone!

First and foremost, I want to thank everyone for your words of encouragement over the past few days. Your outpouring of support makes me even more excited to announce that I am running for Alderman of the 8th Ward!

Our ward now has the opportunity and challenge of choosing a new representative to carry its voice in City Hall. I am proud to be a part of a community with such a strong commitment to inclusion and to civic engagement. My neighbors inspire me every day with the things they are doing to raise each other up. When we succeed, we celebrate the things we’re doing well. When we face challenges, we come together to listen and find solutions. We’re not afraid of getting our hands dirty and thinking outside the box. It’s time that we have a voice at the Board of Aldermen that reflects this spirit, and I am asking for your support to be just that.

As an attorney who works on immigration and civil rights cases and through my experience as your Democratic Committeewoman, I believe I am uniquely positioned to be that voice. Our city faces challenges from our federal and state governments, as well as challenges and opportunities we have created for ourselves. I will work together with my colleagues and the citizens of St. Louis towards an equitable, thriving city and community for us all.

I’ve heard from many of you over the past few years, months, and more recently the past few days and that has filled me with gratitude and energy to get to work. The election will be held on February 13 and I will need your help! Please reach out if you are interested in getting involved. I’m eager to get going, and I can’t wait to serve as your Alderman!

Your neighbor,
Annie Rice
8th Ward Democratic Committeewoman
