Jobs and Economic Development

The connection between economic growth, social progress and environmental protection represents a key to development. Growth is not a means to an end; it is designed to serve people, promote development, and reduce poverty. Change is crucial to creating new jobs. Many people can barely live on what they earn. This is why creating new jobs, in addition to improving incomes for existing jobs, is extremely important.


How I plan to improve and create jobs and economic development:


1) I will re-position St. Louis as a "sustainable city," fueled by industries that serve the emerging markets for environmental remediation, alternative energy, and high-performance building.


2) I will improve the physical environment to stem disinvestment and promote social and economic growth.


3) I would encourage infill and redevelopment.


4) I will optimally utilize Economic Development best practices to attract businesses.
