InfoFrancis G. Slay was sworn in as the forty-fifth Mayor of the City of St. Louis on April 17, 2001. As Mayor, he is now positioned to fulfill his dream of "making a difference in the city of his birth" after a long career as both a public servant and a litigator.

In 1985, Francis Slay began his public service when he was elected to the St. Louis Board of Aldermen to represent the City's 23rd Ward. He was elected President of the Board of Aldermen in 1995 and was re-elected to that position in 1999.

As an attorney with the firm of Guilfoil, Petzall and Shoemake for twenty years, Mayor Slay learned to thoroughly prepare for each engagement and quickly gather and assimilate information on a wide variety of topics. He also learned the value and necessity of working hard and meeting deadlines. These skills, combined with his prowess and teamwork as an athlete, serve both him and the City well in his position as Mayor.

A 1973 graduate of St. Mary's High School, Slay went on to Quincy College in Quincy, Illinois, on both academic and soccer scholarships. He graduated in 1977 with a degree in political science. In 1980, Slay received his law degree from Saint Louis University School of Law. After graduation, he served as a law clerk with the Honorable Paul J. Simon, a Missouri Court of Appeals judge in the Eastern District. In 1981, he joined the law firm of Guilfoil, Petzall and Shoemake, where he became a partner specializing in business law and commercial litigation.

The second oldest of eleven children in a household where public service was a number one goal, Mayor Slay is the son of Francis R. and Anna Slay. The Mayor and Kim, his wife of 22 years, live with their children, Francis Jr., and Katherine, in the same south city neighborhood where he grew up.
