Conversation Café: Vince Schoemehl

Attendance: 18 people
So much of modern life is hearsay and sound bite, but your friends at The Commonspace want you to be in direct contact with St. Louis' movers and shakers. To that end, we're kicking off Conversation Café, an occasional, informal lunch conversation that will give you a chance to ask those burning questions and express your own thoughts. Our inaugural lunch guest, Vince Schoemehl, Jr., was a three-term St. Louis mayor and currently serves on the St. Louis School Board and as the president and CEO of Grand Center, Inc., in his spare time. What's up with the schools? Will we really get a trolley through the arts and entertainment district? You'll never know unless you ask.
