well it's a very complex matter, I'm 50/50 on the subjectit does seem the merger with County and City seem to be good to an extent, however I'm not familiarized with the whole St. Louis area stuff. are you for, against or just so so about it?
I support it the merge for the simple fact, it would eliminate the 2 jurisdictional systems (City & County policies) and merge the jurisdiction under 1 professional system. it would eliminate the multiple court system (city/county), executive/mayor system, the 2 court systems, and merge SLMPD into St. Louis County Police. it would undergo as "Metro Govt" meaning you would have a "Metro Mayor", a person that has control over both St. Louis City and St. Louis County, you would have the Metro legislature which would be easier to enforce ordinances, pass laws, and approve of a centralized budget. the city and county would appoint up to 33 council members so both sides have a fair voice, and that the 88 municipalities would become "municipal districts".
Missouri wanted a state vote on it, there was various opposition from both St. Louis City, a few County officials and a couple municipalities. the reason there was a big portion of opposition is because many Missourians who don't live near our area literally has no idea about St. Louis politics, most just come here for sports and that's it. the vote should of stayed within County-City voting region, since it will EFFECT US not the rest of Missouri in a major way.
