This is the second in my series about local good guys. Jerry is a personal injury attorney who has been quite successful. He is now going after employer based 401-k accounts for overly high administrative fees and too low rates of return
Jerry has accomplished two major things for the city of St Louis and State of Missouri. First he took the lead in getting the State historic Tax Credit program approved. This program has resulted in the preservation of thousands of historical buildings and the generation of the investment of Hugh sums of money in our communities.
Second he started and chairs the St Louis Arch Grants which provide startup funds for promising new businesses.
What impressed me the most about Jerry is that both these endeavors do not benefit him directly. He is just a civic minded citizen
