Members of the Transportation & Commerce Committee include 19th Ward Alderwoman Marlene E Davis, Chair; 25th Ward Alderman Shane Cohn, Vice-Chair; 2nd Ward Alderwoman Lisa Middlebrook; 4th Ward Alderman Sam Moore; 14th Ward Alderwoman Carol Howard; 21st Ward Alderman John Collins-Muhammad; 23rd Ward Alderman Joseph Vaccaro. Board President Lewis Reed is a voting member of all committees.
This is the third and last public hearing (for public testimony) on Board Bill 93. Previous meetings were held at City Hall (video) and at a church in Bevo.
6 of 7 Committee members attended the City Hall evening hearing that was videotaped. 30 members of the public participated in that meeting.
Only 2 of 7 Committee members attended the Saturday morning Bevo meeting, no quorum. That hearing was not videotaped and no explanation for that has yet been given. 37 members of the public participated in that meeting. Oddly, the Chair has chosen to call out the public, not her own Committee members, for sparse participation.
There is also an initiative petition drive to force a Public Vote on Airport Privatization should the Board of Aldermen not put it on the ballot. The Prop V petition drive is run by St. Louis Not for Sale. They have Wednesday evening and Saturday afternoon office hours. You may read the petition here.
7th Ward Independent Democrats has endorsed both Prop V and Board Bill 93. Let The People Vote!
