Metro Could Have Saved Money if St. Louis County Had Cooperated

The outgoing head of Metro has stated that the agency could have saved significant sums of money by refinancing its’ bonds. County Executive Stenger was unresponsive to this request and the opportunity has been lost. This of course is very disappointing and a sign of the difunctional nature of our governments.

Steve Stenger, Sheila Sweeney

I am glad the St. Louis County Council is attempting to investigate both these people. Stenger of course made some crooked real estate deals with cronies of his. Sweeney enables this bad behavior with her work at the Economic Development Council. That organization has too many people with high salaries who do not accomplish much. Sheila though seems to act on whatever crooked action Stenger wants. Written by Paul Dribin

St Louis County Again

The papers showed today that the move of county facilities to the former Northwest Plaza is going to cost millions of dollars over budget and without competition. The recipient is a major donor to County Executive Stenger.

Today we learned that Glen Powers, Planning Director of St. Louis County signed off on the lease without even reading it. I. Am really disappointed to see this. I know Glen who I always considered to be an honorable guy and great public servant. I guess we all can error. I have many times seen competent career civil servants sell their souls to the devil.

St. Louis County-Steve Stenger Bad Behavior

The paper was filed over the weekend with more documentation of how County Executive Stenger runs St. Louis County on a pay to play basis. Contractors who make huge donations to his campaign are awarded huge contracts, often for things that don’t make sense financially. There should be a grand jury investigation and a movement to impeach Stenger. Written by Paul Dribin

St Louis County Mayhem

Since Steve Stenger has been elected County Commissioner, there has been mayhem in county government. I hold Stenger primarily responsible for this. He has governed in an arrogant manner and does not seem to be able to get along with members of the council. The council itself has their own partisan agenda. County government which used to be boring, is now filled with ridiculous and childish behavior. Seems like a mini version of Trump. Written by Paul Dribin
