Dump Dooley Stickers Are Showing Up Around Town

The political season is starting early with “Dump Dooley” stickers spotted on cars and trash containers. St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley is the target in an effort to get new leadership in county government.

Many residents have been particularly critical of Dooley regarding his replacement of the County Police Chief, MetroLink, real estate assessments and the trash and recycling programs among others.

Dooley signed a bill Friday morning that will let voters decide on Nov. 3 whether to ban smoking in most indoor public places. "I think it is imperative that the people of St. Louis County deserve to be heard at the polls," Dooley said before signing the bill in his office at the county administration building.

At the same time Dooley’s actions state that the people of St. Louis County do NOT deserve to be heard at the polls when it comes to the maligned trash and recycling program. He’s letting the county and residents slug it out in the courts . . . at the public’s expense.

    Don't stop with dumping Dooley, Dump most of the County Council with him. They all worked together and voted together on most of this crap.

    I totally agree. We need some restructuring of government representation in St. Louis County. No wonder those 90+ other cities formed their own government and incorporation. Their representation has to be considerabley better.

    It all simply comes down to one thing. Elected officials are elected to represent the people that elected them. Once they forget that, and only represent what special interest wants, or what is in their own best interest, voter anger and rejection is bound to happen. Our County elected officials have forgotten who they are supposed to represent. We will have to remind them in the polls come elections time.
