Grow1#9 DO NOT Answer the Grow Missouri (Rex Sinquefield) Privatization Consultants Door to Door Survey of 100,000 St. Louis City homes. We don’t really know what they are doing with this information. It could be they are data mining to target voters, not only for a vote on Airport Privatization but also other ballot issues on Sinquefield’s Agenda.

#10 DO NOT Submit your Comments on Airport Privatization to the Grow Missouri (Rex Sinquefield) Privatization Consultants. This flyer is being used by the Consultants in their citywide canvass. It says “Please Give Us Your Take On This” at http://www.fly314.com/contact/. But, like the Survey, we don’t really know what they are doing with this information. It could be they are data mining to target voters, not only for a vote on Airport Privatization but also other ballot issues on Sinquefield’s Agenda.

Soulard was Russell (except St. Joseph’s block, which had previously been Ursuline Convent) to Brewery, 7th to Riverfront (now Kosciusko industrial tract), and Soulard Market to Chouteau.

City Eco Devo Consultant Selection Meetings Lacked 24 Hours Notice

yTkejEGTEThis is going about as well as the Airport Privatization Consultant Selection process.

At 11:57 am Today/Monday, the City posted an online Notice/Agenda for a 3:30 pm Today Meeting for the Selection Committee for RFQ (Request For Quotation/bid) for Consultant for City of St. Louis Economic Development Strategy.

That’s a 3 hour, 27 Minute Online Notice for a meeting. State Law requires 24 hours public notice. By Mayor Krewson’s Executive Order, these notices must be posted Online to City website at least 24 hours in advance.

The meeting will be held at SLDC Conference Room B, 2nd Floor, 1520 Market, City Hall West.
