The Kelley Group Banks

yTkejEGTEIt’s hard to keep track of The Kelley Group banks. I mean political action committees.

Regional Progress PAC accepted deposits from Anheuser-Busch, Schnuck Markets, Centrex Strategies/Lou Hamilton, HMS Host (airport food), and QuikTrip, and then remitted the funds to candidates who cannot accept corporate checks: Top recipients…
$25,044 to Mayor Lyda Krewson
$10,000 to St. Louis County Executive Steve Stenger
$6,000 to 28th Ward Alderwoman Heather Navarro
$5,044 to 7th Ward Alderman Jack Coatar
$5,000 to 19th Ward Alderwoman Marlene Davis
$4,000 to Board President Lewis Reed
$4,000 to 3rd Ward Alderman Brandon Bosley

STL Citizens for Safety is the April 4th St. Louis County Prop P Sales Tax Election account. It still carries a $82,397.52 debt.

Citizens for a Safer St. Louis is the November 7th St. Louis City Prop P Sales Tax Election account. It spent $363,698.40 thru election day, including money to committees owned by 5th Ward Committeewoman Penny Hubbard, 17th Ward Alderman Joe Roddy, and 21st Ward Alderman John Collins-Muhammad.

And, it turns out, The Kelley Group founded a new bank, I mean PAC, a few months ago.

STL Citizens for Responsible Government collected…
$25,000 from Anheuser-Busch on August 29th
$5,000 from John Bardgett & Associates on September 20th
$10,000 from Central Bank on September 26th

Then, on September 26th, STL Citizens for Responsible Government gave Citizens for Steve Stenger a check for $15,000.

The newest bank, I mean PAC, received another $10,000 from Anheuser-Busch on November 9th (two days after the City Prop P Election) and then gave $30,000 to Citizens for a Safer St. Louis.

You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure out the Bardgett and Central Bank money was intended for Stenger.
