Roorda in JeffCo
Former Rep. Jeff Roorda is running full blast for Jefferson County Executive as Dems try to retake what the Republicans have conquered over the past few cycles. Roorda recently had a big fundraiser with a lot of labor heavies hosting. Names on the invite: Pat White (St. Louis Labor Council), John Stiffler (St. Louis Building Trades), Chuck DeMoulin (JeffCo Labor Club), Tim Meadows (Teamsters Local 600), Dave Cook (UFCW Local 655), and Marty McLimens (Rockwood Labor Club).
And then later this month, he’ll hit the other pool of Democratic money: lawyers. Governor Jay Nixon has reportedly signed on as a special guest for that fundy to take place at Bruntrager & Billings.
