Nice Reed sign on the fence.

White liberals will be the deciding voters in next week's election. Reed appeals to diversity-lovers. But oddly, Shrewsbury seems to be getting both the given conservative whites and the unexpected single-issue liberals, which include the park purists, animal lovers and now building preservationists. But while Shrewsbury is a known dog lover, I wonder if his other stances aren't more politically calculated.

If this where Soulard or LaFayette Square and Benton Park area this would not be the case. This is a terrible shame!!!!! How could April Ford-Griffin let this happen, when she knows that people are coming back to Old North Saint Louis to rehab these jems of history. Michael Allen please run against her in the next election! We need you!!!!!

I'm not sure what makes anonymous think that Shrewsbury somehow pro-building conservation, but I know that his position on the park issue evolved from thinking that a better deal could be made to outright opposition based on the input his office received from voters. I don't know about you, but that's the kind of political calculation I can support.
