As a Lawyer and Alderman, Keith Short cares about the safety and rights of citizens

Recently the City of Edwardsville discussed a much needed new public safety project. The debate focused on the need to build a new fire station on the western side of the city, adjacent to SIUE and on property donated by the University. Funding for the project was debated at length. The article attached below shows the efforts of Alderman Short and others to ensure that the citizens not be over taxed and that they have a right to comment and meaningfully participate in the project. http://www.theintelligencer.com/local_news/article_929acbdc-adec-11e3-80fd-0019bb2963f4.html. Anyone wishing to discuss the fire station project or any other Edwardsville concerns is invited to call Mr. Short at 618-655-9499
