Group Wants Audit of Florissant, a.k.a. Miss USA 2004's Hometown
|Florissant: What would Shandi do?|
Friends of Florissant has a complete list of grievances on its Web site, but here are a few of the highlights they want examined:
- Mayor Robert Lowery Sr. and his alleged use of a Florissant police officer as a full-time personal assistant and chauffeur.
- The Florissant Golf Course, which they say is a perennial money-loser.
- A real-estate transaction between the City of Florissant, auto dealer Johnny Londoff and Matthew Burghoff, a Kirkwood developer who was sentenced in December to two years in prison for bank fraud.
Seems to me Lowery (or whoever approved that sign) went a little overboard on that one, especially since Finnessey traded in the crown years ago.
