I am writing to thank you for your support of our St. Louis County parks and readiness to band together to protect them.
As a lifelong St. Louis resident, I cannot envision our County without its parks. As a public official who considers his primary responsibility to be protecting the interests of those who call our County home, I am disheartened that our beautiful parks are being held hostage as a means of achieving a political agenda.
Government is supposed to work for you, and I am disappointed that our constituents should have to defend their interests themselves, rather than having leadership in place to serve that function.
I have been inspired by the willingness of so many County residents to fight for our parks, and encourage all residents to stand with me and make your voices heard.
Chairman, St. Louis County Council
