Better Together STL and Show Me Institute are 501c3 Rex Sinquefield charities. He gets to writeoff his quest.

RFT has a great rant on this by Ray Hartman.

I haven't fully looked at this deal- but is it true ? - the merger would be subject to state-wide vote , rather than county city vote?

Quote:
Obviously, the worst of it is resorting to a statewide vote when it’s so clear that St. Louis County would overwhelmingly reject the forced marriage with the city. But last week, Better Together doubled down with a series of dictates about how — assuming passage in 2020 — they’ll “transition” St. Louis to the powerful mega-city through the careful, watchful guidance of our existing politicians until 2024. 

So, we’ll entrust the destruction of the status quo to those who presently preside over the status quo?

It is a statewide referendum
