Corrigan Defeats Dooley in District Voting

St. Louis County Executive challenger, Bill Corrigan, defeated incumbent Charlie Dooley in winning 14 districts to Dooley’s 13, but Dooley prevailed in the total vote count. Dooley’s strength came from north county voters by winning 70.81% of the vote. In South County, Dooley won 38.52% compared to Corrigan’s 58.83%.

In West County, Dooley got only 33.68% of the votes compared to 64.36% for Corrigan. In the Central districts of Bonhomme and Clayton, Dooley lost both with Corrigan receiving 52.32% in Bonhomme and 51.69% in Clayton.

In two districts, neither candidate received a majority of the votes receiving less than 50%.
Comments received on this site since the election include the following:

“Charlie got re-elected due to the rampant racism in North County.”

“Charlie, your win is not a MANDATE, you barely were re-elected to your post. Take note, you won your spot back with the help of your entitlement greedy supporters. Come down off of your pedestal and start governing and representing the real taxpayers.”

Many residents in the county feel Mr. Dooley has often “reacted” to events rather than “acting” thus creating a continuous stream of headaches – taxes, trash, police, mergers, etc. It’s felt he often rides in on the coattails of others taking credit where credit is not due. One example may be his campaign of the County having a AAA rating when this rating may have been there long before him.

    North County ruled this election.

    Like it or not, lazy voters missed their opportunity here. Shame on lazy voters.

    You will get what you allowed to happen.

    St. Louis County is a clear case of the tail wagging the dog.

    Well I already planned on moving out of St. Louis County because of the communist trash system. I only hope I can sell my house now. With Dooley pushing the city county merger there will probably be a mass exodus. Communism is spreading and people just put their head in the sand. Wait to the majority work in the government and we'll see how we support it.
