New Recorder Fails To Comply With Sunshine Law, Florida Working With Mayor To Stonewall

In my Wednesday email to members of St. Louis Democratic City Central Committee, I wrote:

The new Recorder of Deeds has had seven business days to produce copies of thirteen checks from the Recorder’s technology and Preservation Fund.

It’s been sixteen business days since the City Counselor’s Office got involved.

I’ve been trying to get Ed-Recorder Sharon Carpenter’s vehicle mileage logs since April 28th.

Last week, I did not blame newly appointed Recorder Florida.

But now it is obvious that Recorder Florida is working in concert with the City Counselor’s Office and, therefore, Mayor Francis Slay to stonewall release of public records to serve political purposes relating to her Independent bid for Recorder on the November ballot.

Is this what we are to expect on other records maintained by the Recorder? Will it take more than a week to get a copy of your real estate recorder of marriage license?

Shouldn’t Democratic Party voters have all the information on Ex-Recorder Carpenter’s handling of public funds and resources before the August 5 election, not after the election when it suits the Mayor?
