When St. Louis Public Schools (SLPS) last appointed a member of the Land Reutilization Authority (LRA) Commission, Bill Clinton was president. Howard Hayes went on to serve 12 years, as the LRA continued to amass property.

In a letter obtained by the Show-Me Institute yesterday, we learned the identity of the district's next appointee to LRA — Roger CayCe, executive director of operations for SLPS. Rick Sullivan, president and CEO of the school district, wrote, "We are sure Mr. CayCe will depict the same labor as a board member as he does in his position with SLPS."

We look forward to presenting our ongoing research about the agency to CayCe in the hope that the LRA will continue its recent positive momentum.

CayCe's first regular meeting as a member of the LRA Commission will take place at 8:30 a.m. on April 27, 2011, in Suite 1200 at 1015 Locust St. in downtown St. Louis. Mark your calendars; we will be there to keep you up-to-date.
