The man who was the face of Ferguson, Missouri, in the turmoil that followed the 2014 fatal police shooting of Michael Brown has opposition in his re-election bid.
The St. Louis suburb announced Thursday that two candidates are running for mayor in the April 4 election — incumbent James Knowles III and councilwoman Ella Jones. The election is nonpartisan.
Knowles was elected to his first three-year term in 2011 and re-elected in April 2014. That August, white officer Darren Wilson fatally shot Brown, who was 18, black and unarmed.
