Grumpy Monday: One Monday a month any resident of St Louis County can come talk with me for up to ten minutes. I will sit and listen from 6am-6pm.
Senior Wednesday: One Wednesday a month I will draw the name of a Senior Center located in St. Louis County out of a bingo number cage and visit the center for four hours at the minimum. Seniors are a wealth of knowledge.
Jail House Friday: One Friday a month I will visit the inmates at the county jail and/or inmates from St. Louis County whom are in the state prison system. I will speak with them on what kind of environment could have St. Louis County provided that would have helped prevented their criminal behavior.
I will seek to bring a NFL and NBA teams too the St. Louis area with the majority ownership held by St. Louis County. The profits from these teams will go to emergency rescue teams and Law enforcement through out the county to better equip them.
I will create a self-funding fund which will virtually eliminate the property tax. This fund will funded by a small sale tax of 1% or less. Food medical supplies and toiletries along with cloths well be exempt from the tax.
The monies in the fund will be diversified, similar to reason one to elect Andrew Ostrowski. These funds should provide 15%-20% interest on the monies placed in the funds. Example is Berkshire Hathaway B Share (NYSE: BRK-B) which has a total gain of 343.7% from January 2001- May 2018 We will have the fund manger diversify the monies into High Yield Stocks, Bonds R.E.I.T. (Real Estate Investment Trust) and Precious Metals. With the proper allocation of these monies we can in my opinion avoid market risk.
The size of the fund will growth each year. The interest from the fund will go to reduce the overall property.
I have a plan to build high speed public trains go down interstate 270, connected with high public train running down interstates 55, 44 ,40 and 70 where a trains will meet in St. Louis.
These train lines will have high security and WIFI. Here is the plan. Too fund LIGHT-RAIL that runs under or above interstate 270,70, 40, 44 and 55 we will issue bonds at twice the cost needed to fund this project. Half the monies will towards building the LIGHE-RAIL system, with the second half of the monies being placed in funds by a fund manager. These funds should provide 15%-20% interest on the monies placed in the funds. Example is Berkshire Hathaway B Share (NYSE: BRK-B) which has a total gain of 343.7% from January 2001- May 2018 We will have the fund manger diversify the monies into High Yield Stocks, Bonds R.E.I.T. (Real Estate Investment Trust) and Precious Metals. With the proper allocation of these monies we can in my opinion avoid market risk.
This way 3%-6% can be paid to the Bond Holders with 1% going the Fund manger and 1% going insurance to cover any short fail in earnings so the Bond Holders can get the minimum return. I feel that these train lines can be built with no cost to the local tax payer.
The left over monies can go to buying the Bonds back over 30 years or with the creation of new financial tools after 30 years the bonds turn into shares of s R.E.I.T. with .1%-1% luxury sales tax to pay dividends on the shares of the R.E.I.T. There are some Fund Mangers with a great grasp on analyzing graphs and charts on when a financial tool will rise and fail. I personally think the bonds can be bought back.
The first step would be to have Legislation passed in Jefferson City that will allow the issuing of these types of Bonds.
Let us compete with the rest of our global society. These train lines will be high class train lines. Something we all deserve.
A combination of the two videos below is my vision of high quality public transportation for the St. Louis area.
