Mayor agrees to change 4 of her 9 freeholders picks; new names yet to be announced

On the replacement list are all four of the mayor’s African American nominees — the Rev. Earl Nance, a prominent pastor active in various civic causes over the years; LaShana Lewis, a diversity and technology consultant; Taunia Mason, a St. Louis Science Center manager and the wife of Circuit Judge David Mason; and Abdullah Abdul-Kaba, an official with a development firm and a former Berkeley city manager.

Last month Krewson had said the committee on Oct. 19 had asked that the names of Nance, Lewis and Abdullah be withdrawn, along with Eddie Roth, a lawyer and a former top aide to former Mayor Francis Slay.

Roth wasn’t on the latest rejection list submitted Friday by Moore and Reed, who has been trying to mediate the dispute.
