Let’s be honest, if you’re like me and many others across this country, you don’t normally pay real close attention to some of the local county/municipal races and tend to vote with your closest party affiliation. For me, that was usually voting Democrat. I’ve voted solidly Democrat for the last 15 years.
However, Mark Mantovani has me crossing my usual line. I must say that the St. Louis County executive races have piqued my interest for the last few elections, and I’ve seen the mess that former St. Louis County Executive Steve Stenger created, which Dr. Sam Page has clearly exacerbated by stoking county council in-fighting and dysfunction.
