From County Executive Dooley’s Desk

Charlie A. Dooley

I'd like to use this space in the April edition of the DIRECT to talk about one of St. Louis County's own that we lost last week, 2nd District Councilwoman Kathleen Kelly Burkett.

Kathy Burkett was a dear friend; she was family. We met at the 1988 Democratic National Convention after she spilled coffee all over me. We laughed about it and we have been close from that day.

Kathy was a no-nonsense person who said what she meant and meant what she said. She was the consummate politician but she didn’t have any tolerance for petty politics or posturing. She never hesitated to let you know what she was thinking and when she gave you her word on something you could take it to the bank.

Kathy adored her family and friends and she took care of her constituents like they were her own family. She loved representing the people of the 2nd Council District.

My heart is heavy right now but Kathy died the way she lived---on her own terms. My prayers are with her family as I know she’s resting in peace.
