Greitens opposes use of taxpayer money for St. Louis soccer stadium
Today, Governor-elect Eric Greitens announced his opposition to taxpayer funding for a new soccer stadium in St. Louis.
"I'm opposed to spending taxpayer money to build a soccer stadium in St. Louis," Greitens said. "This project is nothing more than welfare for millionaires. Right now, because of reckless spending by career politicians, we can't even afford the core functions of government, let alone spend millions on soccer stadiums. This back-room wheeling and dealing is exactly what frustrates Missourians. This type of politics as usual is coming to an end."
