Teamsters Joint Council 13 has become the second union to endorse County Councilman Steve Stenger for St. Louis County executive. The St. Louis County Police Officers Association announced its endorsement three weeks ago.

In making the Teamsters announcement last week, Council President Marvin Kropp noted that, “Over the past few years, we as Teamsters believe that current Executive (Charlie) Dooley has lost touch with labor and has not addressed many concerns that reflect our membership.”

In expressing the Joint Council’s call for a change in county leadership, Kropp added, “We look to have Teamster boots on the ground canvassing for Stenger to ensure his win.”
