Here's the reality,

Not only did he support/fund Prop P,

"Neidorff was given the award, which was selected by a committee of previous winners, for mainly helping the Ferguson area. Yet the one person he has been most successful in helping is himself. Neidorff has been the highest-paid CEO in St. Louis. His current yearly pay package is $22 million. A shareholder's advocacy group named him one of the most overpaid executives in the country.

This model is so dated. These orgs serve no purpose today other than creating jobs for those outside our community and their black mascots to ‘help us’.
