FOCUS on Downtown Public Policy Forum Events Begin this Week

The Holden Public Policy Forum at Webster University is teaming up with FOCUS St. Louis, the region’s citizens league, to offer a new speaker series dedicated to downtown issues. “FOCUS on Downtown with the Holden Public Policy Forum” aims to get people to come downtown more often; foster a dialogue about downtown misconceptions, challenges and solutions; and realize the area’s importance to the health of the entire St. Louis area.

Members of the local media will serve as guest speakers for the program. They include McGraw Milhaven (KTRS-AM), Carol Daniel (KMOX-AM), Mike Owens (KSDK-TV) and Jo Mannies (St. Louis Beacon). Topics to be discussed include revitalization, infrastructure and safety, among others.
All programs are free and open to the public, and local Missouri wines will be available for sample after each program. The first event will take place this Thursday, January 28 at 6 p.m. at the Old Post Office.

Be there!
