In a globally competitive economy, we cannot continue to spend $2 billion dollars annually to run all 116 governments in the city and county of St. Louis. These are funds we could be spending on upgrading our infrastructure, investing in bio-tech and our budding entrepreneurial sector, and providing the world class education our children deserve and need if we are to thrive. Unifying the city and the county would put us firmly on a path to future prosperity. We must act now.
