The Rev. Earl Nance Jr., a prominent pastor, and Eddie Roth, who has held several key City Hall posts, are among nine people chosen Monday by Mayor Lyda Krewson for a board that will study possible changes in the area’s governing structure.
Krewson announced her choices for the Board of Freeholders just hours after election officials in the city and St. Louis County certified that a petition drive had gathered enough signatures to trigger the board’s formation.
Krewson’s list, which must be confirmed by the Board of Aldermen, also includes attorneys Jerry Schlichter, James Mathis and Dan Zdrodowski, Park Central Development executive director Abdul-Kaba Abdullah and IT consultant LaShana Lewis.
Other Krewson appointees are Taunia Allen Mason, the 28th Ward Republican committeewoman and a city Port Authority member, and Bridget Flood, executive director of the Incarnate Word Foundation.
