On November 2nd, Missouri voters overwhelmingly voted for the passage
of Proposition A, millionaire Rex Sinquefeld's initiative that banned
future municipal earnings taxes and requires St. Louis and Kansas City
voters to approve the continuation of each cf their 1% earnings tax on
residents and those employed in their borders every five years. As
soon as April, voters in both Kansas City and St. Louis will vote to
repeal or ret...ain their city's earnings tax.

At December's City Affair, join us for a spirited discussion when our
panelists and you, the audience, debate the next step in the debate
over the retention of St. Louis's 1% earnings tax. Should we retain
the tax? Should we work for its repeal? What really are the arguments
for and against the 1% earnings tax? How will you vote in April?

Tentatively we have several special speakers/panelists who will join
us to lead the discussion:

Lyda Krewson - Ward 28th Alderwoman

Lisa Selligmann - Architect, Central West End resident

Mike Glodeck (?)- Owner of Foam, small businessman

Stay tuned for longer biographies for each of our panelists, as well
as additional panelists who may join the discussion.
