St. Louis, Missouri Mayor Francis Slay Backs American Jobs Act

Statement from St. Louis, Missouri Mayor Francis Slay:
There are the words that every mayor in America wants to hear from the federal government:  education, innovation, and infrastructure.  President Obama used these words tonight to explain how our country is going to replace jobs, create opportunities, and spur economic growth…I will be on my telephone with some of our biggest and smallest companies telling them that I think the tools President Obama has promised will let them start hiring again, that government will not be in their way.”
