CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) — A Florissant pastor nominated to the St. Louis County Police Commission has withdrawn his name from consideration.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Reverend Freddy Clark told County Executive Charlie Dooley Friday morning that he is no longer interested. Clark is the founder of the Shalom Church in Florissant.
Dooley announced two weeks ago that he was appointing Clark and former Republican gubernatorial candidate Dave Spence to the police board, subject to County Council approval.
The appointments came as the FBI investigates the business dealings of former police board chairman Gregory Sansone, who resigned last month.
Board member Floyd Warmann had previously resigned in August. And board member Ray Wagner announced last week that he will step down this fall.
