Labor Trib and St. Louis American Say No on Prop A

This week the St. Louis Labor Tribune and The St. Louis American both came out in opposition to Billionaire Rex Sinquefield’s Proposition A Body Cam Scam.

The Labor Tribune called the ballot issue “Fiscal Insanity” and noted opposition from various labor organizations.

The St. Louis American labeled the proposal “a contrivance” and noted, “St. Louis will still need employees to handle the land deeds, marriage licenses, birth certificates and all the other recorder’s functions that aren’t going away. With all the costs inherent in the recorder’s office, there’s no way the savings could make even a dent in the total cost for body cameras.”

The growing list of Proposition A Opponents is here.

The list of Proposition A Supporters:
Billionaire Rex Sinquefield
State Senator Jamilah Nasheed
Outgoing Mayor Francis Slay
Former Recorder of Deeds, Former 15th Ward Alderwoman Jennifer Florida
