More Dooley Cronyism in St. Louis County?

Quote of the Day: Former Temporiti Trash Client “Becoming Closer and Closer to a Monopoly All the Time”

If the cronyism going on in St. Louis County Executive Dooley’s office wasn’t so sad, it would be hilarious fodder for Ripley’s Believe it or Not!

First, the day after Dooley’s re-election mind you, St. Louis County taxpayers learned that the taxes on their homes was going up. Next, we learned that Dooley consiglieri John Temporiti’s son was awarded a no bid, $70,000 a year job that was created just for him – during a three year hiring freeze!

And to cap the week off, another crony – county counselor Patricia Reddington – has delayed for 19 months the trial of two SEIU thugs who beat up an African American trying to make an honest dollar outside of a Russ Carnahan town hall meeting a couple of summers ago:

“I think honestly, Charles Dooley and Patricia Reddington, they have a big stake in this when it comes to the union,” Gladney said, “They are go-getters for the union.” Read more…
