Former State Senator To Announce Candidacy
ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Former state Senator Jane Cunningham will answer the question, “Are you running for St. Louis County Executive?” at tonight’s Monarch Fire Board meeting, where she serves as secretary.
Cunningham hasn’t said whether she’s running, but she talks as if she will.
“The experience I’ve had on Monarch Fire Board, has been very instructive to me of reforms that can be used in the county,” said Cunningham. “How we can quickly turn around a district that’s in disarray.”
The last Republican attempting to a run was Bill Corrigan, who lost to incumbent Democrat Charlie Dooley. After what happened to Corrigan, is there a silver lining for Republicans this time around?
“I have been deciding after the urging Republican leaders in St. Louis County, deciding about running for county exec and I will announce that decision tonight,” says Cunningham.
She feels that the party has an excellent chance because of highly publicized mismanagement, FBI investigations, corruption and the misuse of money.
