Latest and Greatest and More

I just want to start this entry by first thanking the three candidates for their response to Jeremiah. While I have not heard back from Jeremiah, I am sure he was pleasantly surprised and is now well informed.

We are now less than three weeks from the August primaries. Do you know who you are going to vote for? Have you done your research? If not, do so now. Know full well who you are voting and what you are voting for. We are now baring witness to what happens when people vote for someone without really listening or researching what that person is all about.

Now, on to some other things. Depending upon where my research takes me, I may be out of the loop for a bit. I am digging into some things that MAY turn into something or nothing at all. Of course, if it is something, you will read about it here. That said, I am also thinking about expanding the offering of this blog.

While I have mainly focused on the issues of MO 1st district on a federal level, I would like to expand out and talk about some of the local issues. Specifically, I would like to tackle some of the issues affecting areas like Florissant, Hazelwood, Maryland Heights, Ferguson, Jennings, and just north St. Louis County on a state level. So, I am reaching out to you, the readers of this blog and making an offer. If you would be interested in participating by writing on issues at a city, county or state level I would welcome it. If you are interested or would like to help in some way, please email me so we can discuss further.

Nearly 1 year ago (7/23/09) I started this blog. I was not sure anyone would even read it. But as I stated then, I was tired of not being listened to. I wanted to make a difference and did not know how. In the past I had donated to campaigns and talked up candidates, but it had grown beyond that. With this tiny blog, I have been able to bring to light many of the things that the St. Louis Post Dispatch just will not report. No one else was reporting on Lacy's tight relationship with the Rent to Own and Payday Loan industry. No one else was highlighting the HUGE campaign payments Lacy is making to his sister. With a little research and the willingness to do so, I was able to uncover these things and bring them to light. You too can do the same. If you want to be a part of this movement, a movement to bring back fiscal responsibility and small government to the citizens of North St. Louis City and County, then help me.
