CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) — St. Louis County’s top elected official wants another term in office.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that county Executive Charlie Dooley announced Thursday that he will seek re-election in 2014.

Dooley has been executive since succeeding Buzz Westfall after Westfall died in office in 2003. Dooley, a Democrat, won a special election in 2004 and re-election in 2006 and 2010.

    That’s fine but it is a while before the election. The County economic is in ‘not great shakes’, especially the inner municipalities. End the Zoo-Museum tax to circulate 50 million a year in the County. Eliminate the bicycle paths ‘everywhere’ tax. There are enough bike paths and trails. Devote all the hotel/motel tax to County tourism including the Park. Create your own big attractions, weather-protected that can draw people in the winter time and not not-for-profits. You need tax revenue. Improving the economy has never been in the hands of voters. It is in the hands of leaders.
