I believe St. Louis City and County will be better off as a single metropolitan city instead of the many local governments and elected officials we currently have.
Will this be a disruption to existing structures? Yes. Will this be easy? No. But we are working against each other instead of as a unified force for economic growth, educational parity, public safety and so much more.
Nothing will take Kirkwood and Webster Groves (and any other neighborhood) away; the people and culture are not defined by laws or boundaries, they are created by the people who live here.
St. Louis is full of smart, energetic, creative and passionate folks. Let’s be progressive and help our whole region by acting as one St. Louis.
