Mayor Krewson Appoints Alderman Stephen Conway as City Assessor
St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson has appointed longtime 8th ward alderman Stephen Conway to city assessor on Monday.
“Steve’s experience in government, his acumen and his passion for the City make him the ideal candidate for this position,” Krewson said in a statement. “The Assessor is a serious position
that requires someone with Steve’s commitment. I couldn’t be more happy that he is taking on this role.”
The office has 62 employees and a yearly budget of $2.6 million a year.
Conway replaces Freddie Dunlap, a retired United States Air Force Master Sergeant and longtime city employee, who retired this month after four years in the position.
In a retirement ceremony last week, Krewson thanked Dunlap for his service to the country and the city of St. Louis.
The appointment is effect immediately. Conway has agreed to resign from his post on the board of alderman.
