JEFFERSON CITY — State Sen. Jamilah Nasheed, D-St.Louis, today issued the following statement relating to the announcement of the St. Louis Airport Privatization Advisory Team:

“I am calling for the removal of Grow Missouri, Inc. as a member of the St. Louis Airport Privatization Advisory Team,” said Sen. Nasheed. “The conflict of interest this group poses threatens to derail the process with the Federal Aviation Administration and it reduces the public’s trust in the process. This cannot go on. Additionally, the advisory team as a whole has been secretive and as a result, their actions have reduced the public’s trust in the process. I believe this process needs transparency, not back room deals. Unfortunately, I cannot support the privatization process going forward because of the involvement of Grow Missouri and the lack of transparency.”
