The Ste. Genevieve County Democratic Club will host guest speaker Nancy Rice, executive director of Better Together, to discuss on the proposed merger of St. Louis city and county governments, which may be on a statewide ballot in the near future.
The event will take place at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, April 17, at the Steelworkers Union Hall, 950 South Gabori St.
Rice will make a brief presentation followed by a question and answer session.
All members of the community are invited to learn about how this merger will affect the state of Missouri in addition to St. Louis city and county.
“We are excited to bring the conversation to the Ste. Genevieve Democratic Club,” Rice said. “Currently, the St. Louis region is massively overspending on duplicative government services, and the Better Together consolidation plan will save taxpayers billions, while creating new economic activity and jobs.”
Better Together’s mission is to support the St. Louis region by acting as a catalyst for the removal of governmental, economic, and racial barriers to the region’s growth and prosperity for all of citizens by promoting unity, trust, efficiency, and accountability.
