CEOs promise 'energy and resources' for St. Louis city-county merger

The two groups, made up of more than 100 of the region’s top executives, also called on St. Louisans to support the unification advocacy group Better Together’s proposal.

“We believe that the current fragmented approach to governance between the City and the County has created a situation that no one ever imagined or wanted,” said Wednesday’s announcement, signed by Chamber chairman Tom Minogue, head of the Thompson Coburn law firm, and Civic Progress chairwoman Suzanne Sitherwood, president and CEO of gas company Spire. “It’s resulted in a divided region with costly and redundant public services, structural barriers, lagging economic growth and deep social inequities.”

Sitherwood sits on the task force that led the effort to write Better Together’s merger proposal, released last week.
