Time to press the issue. The momentum is at our backs and Mayor Lyda Krewson is now playing a game of defense. In my opinion it’s time to look at applying some pressure towards and stiffening our resistance to the State of Missourah in light of recent hostilities towards St Louis from Missourah Governor Eric Greitens and the State GOP.
Earlier today Missouri Governor Eric Greitens and St Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson delivered addresses at the Riverview Plaza Shopping Center in North St Louis on their new plans on combatting violent crime in St Louis. Some key aspects of this plan include utilizing the Missouri Highway Patrol to monitor interstates through the city, the city police restarting the narcotics squad, cracking down on guns and a variety of other measures. Critics of the plan, including State Senator Jamilah Nasheed noted it was basically unfunded “running Peter to pay Paul”. Others have noted with Gov. Greitens supporting right-to-work and slashing the minimum wage of St Louis workers it hardly puts him in a good position to “tackle the root causes of crime”.
