The Honorable Steve Roberts has been a City of St. Louis Alderman, Business & Civic Leader plus a Resident of the 28th Ward for over 25 years. That is why I am writing this full endorsement Article of the Honorable Steve Roberts for 28th Ward Alderman, here this afternoon.
I have personally known this great person for many years & I can tell you can't find or meet a better qualified, more able - bodied & fantastic person then Steve Roberts. Steve Roberts has served his community in so many important & meaningful ways. From raising a wonderful family (His son is the Missouri State Rep. for District 77), to building communities & Building St. Louis. His projects have helped shelter, foster & create safe places for families & children to grow up, be safe & live in vibrant neighborhoods. Much of the City of St. Louis comeback in the last 20 years can be attributed to the positive Media coverage St. Louis has received from there amazing projects & work. Steve Roberts has built the Roberts Tower downtown, rehabbed the Theater right next door to the Tower & redeveloped formally abandoned/vacant properties in Many North St. Louis neighborhoods such as Penrose & the Greater Ville. Steve Roberts has created a truly fantastic family business with his Excellent brother Mike Roberts, a business which continues to help grow & prosper St. Louis. Steve Roberts also redeveloped the Current & Extremely popular Aldi Market at Roberts Marketplace at Delmar & Kingshighway (My Family Shops at Roberts Marketplace every week!) Steve Roberts & Mike Roberts have been more responsible for Building St. Louis then any other family in the History of the City. When they started in business, the City was on its last legs, but with there amazing leadership, business ethics & tireless love of the City & its redevelopment potential, the Roberts companies were able to Build STL & help create many livable, walkable & safe neighborhoods, that before there leadership & smart business sense came in, were on there last legs. Steve Roberts is not only a great & honest businessman but a wonderful gentleman & one of the all - time legends of goodness for the City of St. Louis. I grew up watching the Roberts Properties meteoric rise to greatness & I can say that I could not be more proud to see such a wonderful person run for Alderman of the 28th Ward. A man of Excellence in every Arena of Life.
With all that being said, the Citizens of the 28th Ward must Elect the Honorable Steve Roberts to the Board of Alderman on July 11th. Steve Roberts is the most qualified, honest & kind - hearted person to run for Alderman in my Lifetime. Honorable Steve Roberts will make a truly excellent & outstanding Alderman of the 28th Ward. Steve Roberts understands business sense, how to Build STL & most importantly how to Move St. Louis in a New Direction where all citizens have a voice & a seat at the Table & at City Hall. Importantly & rarely mentioned, Mr. Roberts understands the concerns of the residents of the 28th Ward better then no other, since Mr. Roberts has lived in the Ward much longer then any of the other candidates, Mr. Roberts has a unique perspective on how to improve life for the residents of the Ward, unlike his competitors who have lived in the Ward for a very short period of time. Mr. Roberts competitors have no experience like Mr. Roberts does, How many have Heard of Mrs. Vossmeyer of Mrs. Navarro before this election? Answer: None. Same question to Mr. Roberts: All of St. Louis. Why is that a great attribute? Knowing people & how to operate in the City make for great leadership naturally, Mr. Roberts has the experience to lead the 28th Ward from a multiple vantage points because of his previous experience as a successful Alderman, Businessman & Family Man. His competitors have none of those positive attributes. There attributes are more of liabilities then assets. The only person who is not a liability, but is an asset is the Honorable Steve Roberts. Steve Roberts will make a fantastic Alderman for all of the reasons listed above.
