Who’s Selling St. Louis?

Reading Time: 1

Aerotropolis is a pretty obvious attempt to shift tax money into the pockets of Jefferson City favorites.  It’s an example of crony capitalism at its worst.

Now, KMOV Channel 4’s Craig Cheatham shines the light on the people buying and selling St. Louis in this series.  Not just Aerotropolis, but the whole oligarchy of incompetent, corrupt, and self-serving Boss Hog-types who seem bent on reducing the St. Louis region to irrelevance.

Paul McKee is the developer who puts a lot of tax payer dollars at risk while pocketing the profits if and when they materialize.

This 6-part series gives you a good idea of why the St. Louis region is bleeding jobs and people.

 The Special Session starts Tuesday, September 6, in Jefferson City.  It’s our last chance to tell our legislators to drop Aerotropolis before we drop them.

I have a question for State Senator Eric Schmitt: Who says that St. Louis’s 18 million square feet of vacant warehouse space isn’t good enough for Chinese goods?

I heard Senator Schmidt on KMOX a couple of weeks ago.  He scoffed at the Show-Me Institute’s analysis of available warehouse space for China Hub saying that to use existing space would be like building F-16s in the Wright Brothers’ hangar.

He was not asked—and he did not offer—any evidence for his flippant comment.  Nor did he take phone calls from the public. 

According to this report, the Midwest China Hub Commission flatly contradicts Senator Schmitt’s assertion, saying existing warehouse space is adequate.

Senator, the comment box is open and awaiting your reply. If you don’t have time to write a response here, I hope you’ll have time to talk to people about it on September 6 when the Special Session opens.
