I love my neighborhood and want to make it an ideal place. I want to ensure that low income people are not displaced and that we do not lose their voices in the planning process.
I live in the neighborhood and grew up in the city. I’m scared of the unknown and sense that there are ulterior motives where big money is concerned. I also own a business in this community.
I come from a family of service. I’ve served with lots of other organizations and now want to spend more of my time focused on my neighborhood. I want the community to be a strong, healthy village.
While I was born here, I’ve lived all over the country. I want to change the direction of the neighborhood.
I am a product of Pruitt Iago. I’ve lived in North County and left the St. Louis region to reside in Atlanta. After Atlanta, I moved to the West End where I own one of the few homes on my block. I want to see how to develop this community like Lafayatte Square and Atlanta’s AU Center. I want to be part of the change so that residents are in on the ground floor of development.
I live in the West End and see what a jewel it is. I want to change the perceptions of the neighborhood. I have an Airbnb business here. I want to build up the neighborhood from the inside out.
I have both a residence and a business in the West End. I want to know more about how to be an asset in the community. I want to help keep our neighborhood safe and growing.
I moved back to the West End area. I have always been involved in the community and want to deepen my positive impact.
I moved to the neighborhood from Pasadena Hills to help restore balance and reverse the negative impacts of black folks’ dispersal. I have found a strong sense of community here. I want to connect the neighborhood to the loop and the Central West End.
I moved into this neighborhood in high school. I was a teen mom and am committed to changing the thought processes of young people. I don’t want to be on the outside of my community’s development activities.
A life resident of St. Louis, I've lived in this neighborhood 38 years and I' am a part of the change. I support collective resident input regarding any/all community development, social services and educational activities public or private that advocates for a safe, thriving community.
I have lived in the West End for 3.5 years and bought one of its vacant homes. I am a school counselor. I involve young people in neighborhood betterment activities and am excited to join this team.
I’m from rural northeast Missouri, but I’ve lived in this community for 19 years. I want to leave my neighborhood better than I found it.
