Michael Brown’s mom has lost a bid for a seat on the City Council in Ferguson, Missouri, where her son died in a police shooting that helped spark the Black Lives Matter movement. Lesley McSpadden finished third in a three-way race won by Fran Griffin. “I congratulate Fran on her victory. I feel proud of the positive race we ran, and I loved talking to the Ferguson community,” said McSpadden late Tuesday. “Tomorrow, the work continues and I intend to be a part of it no matter my position. I’m not going anywhere.” Brown, a black 18-year-old, was shot and killed by white police officer Darren Wilson in August 2014. His death led to months of protests. “I wanted to go back and do something right in a place that did something so very wrong to my son, and I think that’s what my son would want as well,” said McSpadden ahead of the election. A St. Louis County grand jury decided in November 2014 not to indict Wilson.
