ST. LOUIS (KMOV) – After losing the race to be St. Louis’ next Board of Alderman President, 7th Ward Alderman Jack Coatar has decided not to run for re-election.

On Monday, Coatar announced that he would not be running for re-election, nor would he be running for any other office in the upcoming Spring municipal elections.

“In the coming months, I look forward to finishing my term as 7th Ward Alderman,” read part of his statement. “There is still a lot of work to be done to improve our community, and I look forward to finding new ways to serve the City and region.”

Earlier this month, Megan Green defeated Coatar to become the next Aldermanic president. He has served as the 7th Ward Alderman for the past seven years.
