County Executive Charlie Dooley will try again to fill two vacancies on the troubled St. Louis County Board of Police Commissioners. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Dooley will formally nominate former Metro CEO Robert Baer and one-time Hazelwood mayor T.R. Carr Tuesday afternoon.
If approved the pair would replace Gregory Sansone and Floyd Warmann, both of whom resigned amid controversy last summer. Sansone is the subject of an FBI probe after it was learned that a company he co-owns was hired as a subcontractor on the county's new police crime lab.
One other seat remains open on the board. Its not known if Dooley has a candidate in mind for that seat.
This is the second time the county executive has tried to fill the vacancies. All three of Dooley's previous police board nominees withdrew their names before confirmations could get underway.
South County Republican Tony Pousosa plans to run for St. Louis County Executive in 2014. The Green Park alderman announced his candidacy Tuesday night.
County Councilman Steve Stenger had announced last month that he will challenge incumbent Charlie Dooley for the Democratic nomination.
That could set up a rematch between Pousosa and Stenger. Pousosa unsuccessfully challenged Stenger for his 6th district council seat in 2012.
