Now that the dust has settled somewhat over former St. Louis County lobbyist Dan Cline’s forced resignation, the county announced their plans to put another tax increase on the April 2010 ballot. The last ballot measure to raise taxes to fund the Metro Transit System went down to defeat with Cline running it. What does County Executive Charlie Dooley think about the tax increase? He is said to be entirely supportive of it.”  This blogger is not too impressed with Mr. Cline’s political abilities.

From Mark Edwards Uncensored:

I’ve written about this gentleman many times before in this blog, and from everything I’ve been able to ascertain, this is the person behind the embarrassingly amateurish and woefully unsuccessful campaign to add a one half cent sales tax in St. Louis County to fund mass transit. The campaign was run out of St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley’s office because Metro, as a public agency, can’t conduct a political campaign.

Cline seems to have been the henchman, I prefer the term HACK, charged with running the campaign, and his efforts were so horrid that a freshman PolySci student would have been sent home with his tail between his legs after having proposed a campaign that so underestimated the needs of the people and the importance of the issue. In a real business, this guy would likely have been fired for blowing the campaign, endangering the economy of the entire St. Louis region, and not carrying out his duties on behalf of the people of St. Louis County.
