St. Charles Co. Exec: City Crime Problems Hurting County Jobs

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Crime problems in the city are hurting the whole region, and something needs to be done — that’s from St. Charles County Executive Steve Ehlmann.

He says a company looking to move jobs will often look at St. Louis first, generally speaking, before learning about different areas.

“I’m afraid people are crossing St. Louis off the list to begin with,” he says. “They never find out about St. Charles. They scratch St. Louis off because of our crime problems.”

So what do we do about it? Ehlmann suggests that protesters, police and suburbanites unite and walk the street of North St. Louis on Friday and Saturday nights.
