A federal lawsuit filed last week could create serious delays for the U-City Loop Trolley project.
It alleges that the vote taken to create the Loop Trolley Transportation Development District violated both state and federal laws.
Four individuals, including former University City Councilwoman Elsie Beck Glickert, filed the suit claiming it was unconstitutional to allow non-resident property owners to vote and weighting that vote based on the number of acres they owned.
The Asian American Chamber of Commerce is a relatively recent addition to the St. Louis business scene. The organization's founders, Johnny Wang and Alexander Lee, created the chamber two years ago in the wake of efforts to create a China Hub at Lambert International Airport.
In the process of their work for the China Hub, Wang and Lee realized St. Louis didn't have an organization dedicated to promoting Asian American businesses and decided to form the Asian American Chamber of Commerce (AACC).
