So the development behind Kensington Apartments purchased almost a year ago by Golden Management who owns Kensington is now up for SALE according to a survey crew I spoke with last week. Apparently the MAYOR and his buddy Goldenberg (owner) have a new plan.
The MAYOR quietly and fully supported Milton’s plan for a LOW-INCOME apartment complex for renters over 55 but was met with Federal and State funding opposition last year. The mayor tried to claim this development was similar to St Patrick’s and St Denis but he only aggravated tenants of these two wonderful establishments -- because they are much different.

Now according to the surveyors our City Administration is working with an ethnic religious organization take over this site.

Is this the type of Administrative Leadership the City of Florissant NEEDS? The city council is totally unaware of the type of deals the city administration is negotiating. Property values in town are dramatically declining see your real estate assessed tax bill. Your real estate assessed value has nothing to do with any of the taxing districts itemized on OUR tax bill. The city administration is doing nothing to enforce current property code violations or address landlord/tenant issues. ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT is to be a POSITIVE movement for the community at large. Our LOCAL property values are declining slipping through our fingers and the city administration is more interested in regional county issues, history lessons to kids of voters, and Shakespeare readings. No wonder good people are moving away.

Mayor Tom, is the weakest of Mayors this city has ever seen. He does very little, takes the easy way out, is directed by past Mayor Bob, and the Labor cartel, and bows to the police dept.

What real challenge has he taken up? Can't think of one.

He should be suggesting a full Florissant Charter Review. This process hasn't taken place in 40 years. I suggest that times have changed, and maybe the City Charter should be reviewed, open to the public, and updated.

Mayor Tom has not practical experience at running a work force, he never has before, and he is weak when pushed by labor.

Mayor Tom, should have been a History Teacher, as he is more interested in the past, than the current time and future. He has no vision.

The current Mayor, at the expense of us citizens who pay his salary, spends a measurable amount of time as President of the Municipal League. The Municipal League connected with the St. Louis City’s RCGA is all about regional growth. This position I agree is a prestigious one. But to what benefit is it to us citizens? A leader with a VISION should be looking at enticing major retailers such as Wal-Mart, to grow the Lindbergh stretch towards Jamestown Mall.“For the good of all”, of course. If Wal-Mart is so confident of their Products, Services, Business Plan and Popularity, encouraging them to locate at their own 11.7 ac. property at 5875 North Hwy 67 63034 would stimulate retail growth for Jamestown Mall and everything in between. Wal-Mart has publicly proclaimed that with their inclusion into a community, that they breed additional thriving businesses. I for one would like to see commercial expansion along Lindbergh eastward. Positive growth in the Jamestown area is needed specially a grocery store. Cultivating growth is what a leader should be doing, It is what is good for ALL.

The Mayor should work with this council instead of fighting it. A real leader reaches out and finds common ground. This mayor is a Bully, actions learned from his bully union friends.

This thread started in Oct 2012, and the message seems to be the same. Schneider is not going a good job. I agree he is a bully and does not play well with others. He seems worse than Lowery was. Knows better than anybody. But at lease Lowey had a personality.

The mayor is just as weird as Lowery for sure. He is like a spoiled brat or emotionally disturbed child.
It is truly sad that the voters of the largest City in Saint Louis County have elected such pathetic leadership.
There are many reasons why this sad state affairs has come about.
Unions, that use to be a valuable social pillar, have become supporters of clowns if the clowns make the right promises to the unions. Instead of telling their members to vote for the "best" candidate, they tell them to vote for the one most easily swayed, in other words "corrupt".
Voters have become apathetic and follow their emotions rather than basing their votes on the facts.
It is easy to make a silk purse look like a sows ear. Creeps can say anything they want whether it is true or not and few check the facts and even when the lies are disproved, people do not find out.
Just look at some of the posts here at topix and you can see how illogical, ignorant and idiotic so many average working class people can be.

You seem so willing to criticize, who from the 2011 election was a better choice?
You can only pick from the candidates who file.

Labor picked their favorite. The voters picked the same one that labor did. The same thing will repeat itself next April.

I am a local 1 member, and will not support Schneider in 2015, He has done nothing for Florissant. If labor decided to back him again, than either there is no one better to support, or it is a tom s butt kiss. Cant believe Tom S sits there and does not have the guts to stand up and speak his mind. Much like the rest of the club.

I like what you're saying, Mark B! We're all having to make budget/household adjustments, the City and their employees should be accountable as well.

Mayor Tom is an evil narcissist, his bipolar anxiety does not allow him to work with others. He has not clue as to how to manage people, problems, challenges or commitments. He was a better follower as councilman, but, does not have the where with all to lead.

Keith English - not surprised you will not be supporting your opponent in the 2015 mayoral election. It has been all over Jeff City since last year's veto session that you are hoping to avoid a primary so you can get re-elected to your house seat and then run for Mayor in 2015.
Everyone also knows your cousin Tom George is President of Local 1.
Clueless.. This is Keith English, and I did NOT post that comment. The Unfortunate thing about Topix is someone can poke people in the eye and hide behind a fictional name. The voters of Florissant are well educated and IF... they dont approve of an elected politician, they will vote them out.. The Mayors job is a thankless job and a tough one. There are many Local One Members in Florissant and his or her opinions are not mine.
