Stan Kroenke, Fresh Off Leaving St. Louis In The Lurch, Asks St. Louis For Tax Dollars

Stan Kroenke, a businessman who quite possibly wears the skinned pelt of a wombat atop his head on purpose, isn’t a popular man in St. Louis. He recently moved the Rams off to Los Angeles, drawing the ire of pretty much everyone there. So how should Stan go about mending his reputation there, seeing as how he has many business holdings in town?

Maybe not by asking for tax dollars for your new development project:

A business partner of Los Angeles Rams owner Stan Kroenke is seeking to develop 1,800 acres of Maryland Heights flood plain into a vast retail, entertainment, office, residential and sports district.

The City Council on Thursday night began the formal process that would allow for tax incentives to aid in the redevelopment, voting to advertise a request for proposals.


Damnit Stan.
