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.
