ST. LOUIS • Board of Aldermen President Lewis Reed will have to replenish his campaign coffers if he makes good on his pledge to run for re-election.
Campaign finance reports show Reed, who recently ran against Mayor Francis Slay in the Democratic mayoral primary, has $25,000 in campaign cash, but owes $41,000 in debts.
Reed raised nearly $700,000 for the mayoral primary, but spent almost all of it before the race was over.
Reed has said he plans to run for re-election as the city's Board of Aldermen president. Unlike in 2011, he is expected to have a challenger.
Regardless, he will have plenty of time to raise more cash. The election isn't until 2015.
