ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - Former gubernatorial candidate Dave Spence took his name out of the running for the St. Louis County Police Board Tuesday night.
The five-seat board now only has two members because of three recent resignations. All the resignations came as the FBI started to look into concerns about construction contracts for the new crime lab.
The St. Louis County director of communications says candidates for the police board are dropping out because of new legislation passed by the St. Louis County Council.
"The personal information and the business information that is now being required of those potential candidates is information that is not even being required of members of the county council themselves," said Patricia Washington.
County Executive Charlie Dooley makes the appointments, and the appointees must be approved by the County Council.
