  1. Who doesn’t like the zoo and museums, I see them as bright spots in a mediocre metro area.

  2. Dear Lisa: there is no St Louis region about which to ‘think’ The dirty deals in the core for 40 years killed the core, people are fleeing, Wentzville will be the center of the new region the west, o’Fallon or Edwardsville to the East. The City will land on your head very quickly. I had a different plan on a different road – and they said: No. Living in your district, my request is end the theft of our tax money by the money-bloated, tax sheltering Zoo and Museums. Let us put that 70 Million a year in play as we see fit.

  3. Congrats! and now please help stop McBride & Sons from continuing to rape SoCo and destroy what little green space that’s left. Their plan for Tower Tee is disgusting….
