Welcome to the Tower Grove East Neighborhood!

Hello fellow TGE’ers, I’m Alex Thomson, our new Association President for 2022! I’m excited to bring us into the New Year and have some fun, but first let me tell you a bit about me and my family. My wife, Emily, and I moved to STL in the summer of 2018 when I was given an assignment to Scott Air Force Base. An Air Force Academy graduate, I’ve served as an Active Duty Air Force Officer since 2014 with Cyberspace Operations as my specialty. Since moving to Tower Grove East, Emily and I have loved every day in this amazing neighborhood and intend to put down roots here; therefore, in the next year or so I’ll be transitioning to the Air Force Reserve to make this our permanent home.

Anyway, that’s enough about me. Coming up, we have some exciting plans and initiatives in store for the neighborhood, but first I wanted to take a moment to share the priorities I have set for the board. These priorities will guide us in our decision-making and dictate how best we can take action to benefit our community.

  • Priority 1, Charitable Giving & Community Development: Give back to charitable organizations that help our residents and bolster initiatives that have the potential for long-term benefits to the neighborhood.
  • Priority 2, Community Engagement Growth Opportunities: Consistently put forth efforts to involve more residents and small businesses of the community in the neighborhood association. Provide a variety of family-friendly and adult social, service, and learning opportunities to neighbors.
  • Priority 3, Diversity & Inclusion: Make TGENA a welcoming environment for all and strive for participation that matches the diverse make-up of our neighborhood.

Thank you for your support to TGE and our Association!

Alex Thomson
President 2021 – 2022
