    Wow. The STLToday coverage should be titled “Shame on you for voting ‘No’ on 2”.

    Not even gonna take a glimpse at the comments.

    Maybe next time county residents will urge their executive to contribute instead of expecting the poorest 10% of the metro to subsidize their entertainment.

      Agreed, except for the PD coverage. I didn’t take it that way and their editorial board urged people to vote no on both Prop 1 and 2.

    That Larry Rice got 10% of the vote is fascinating to me. Yes, I understand protest voting, but 10%? Larry Rice?

    • Alex P

      I am equally baffled by this.

    • Adam

      It was probably a sympathy surge due to the simultaneous closing of NLEC.

    • I voted for him, because he was the most ridiculous candidate. I would have voted for an actual clown, or a dog in a cute outfit, or a sentient toaster, before I’d vote for Lyda.

    It looks like NS garnered a majority, but I’m also reading it required 2/3 majority. I can’t find anywhere that definitively says it passed or not.

    • Alex P

      Unfortunately 2/3 was indeed required. Very disappointing. I was more excited about it than anything else.

      • Adam

        What’s different about prop NS? Why did it need 2/3 instead of just a majority?

        • Alex P

          That is a great question that I would love to know the answer to.

          • amei

            It is because it had to do with increasing property tax.

        • it was an amendment to the city charter, which requires 2/3 vote. same for Props A and B.

          • rgbose

            Charter amendment needs 60%. Bond issue needs 2/3.

      • Bobby Gissendanner

        Why do you think it failed so miserably in north St Louis where most LRA buildings are located?

        • Alex P

          Frustration with rising taxes. I can’t blame them. As with a lot of things, I blame the region for not realizing the value of a strong urban core. Suburban sprawl made worse by fractured government.

          • Alex P

            And to an extent, a lot of residents would prefer Demolition. But as has been stated, demolishing buildings has never shown to improve the economics of a neighborhood.
