Ex-city administrator steals $30,000 for gambling
A former Brentwood city administrator admitted in court that he stole money from the municipality. He used the money to gamble at an East St. Louis-based casino. Christopher A. Seemayer used a municipality credit card at the Casino Queen. His attorneys stated that
the former city administrator tried to repay the missing money by transferring money from his bank account.
Brentwood mayor Pat Kelly said: “Seemayer only stated that he felt sorry for his deeds.” Kelly temporarily relieved Seemayer of his responsibilities. A few days later, Seemayer decided to resign.
His lawyers stated that Seemayer will restitute the missing money on the day of his sentence. The ex-city administrator could be sentenced to a maximum prison sentence of one year. Seemayer declared that he had been treated for his compulsive gambling
