What St. Louis City Needs the Most

What is the most important improvement that St. Louis needs to make in order to be a better city?

The common answer is better schools. Or I hear it’s an improved political environment. Or sometimes I hear racism is a major issue. Yes, yes, yes. Absolutely those need to be bettered. But there is something even more important.

We need vision.

The kind of vision that will lead our for the next decade or two. A kind of vision that will guide us with our decisions in the present and set our hopes for the future. A kind of vision that will inspire us, lead us, mold us.

Give us a vision for our city.
