Time For Action!

Folks, this is why it all started...The Mayor's, well truth be told, it was started as a funny joke, then a mock campaign....but involvement! INVOLVEMENT!! Civic engagement!! Being able to make a difference!! Now I've never asked you for anything, but I continue to give and post things for you, the Afftonians. I'm calling in the favor.

I hear Affton is getting $2 million in HUD money for community development.

Is there any truth to the rumor?

It's a $200,000 grant and it's in full swing. The program is run by UMSL. One of my first posts covered this. It's great stuff for the area and was rolled out to the public last night. I'll cover it shortly in a new topic.
