I am committed to making your voice heard in St. Louis County government. Like you, I want to play an active role in making our community safer, a better place to raise our children, run our businesses, and forge a future filled with unlimited promise. I also want good, honest government making thoughtful and strategic decisions for all of us.
My door is always open. I will listen to input from any constituent and do what I can to help make government better.
Over the years I have cultivated relationships with local mayors and other elected officials that I can the use to address citizen issues quickly and effectively.
Projects like the POWERplex in Hazelwood and Gateway Studios in Chesterfield will bring tourism and jobs to the region. That’s why I am working with Missouri Department of Economic Development to help bring these and other projects forward to make St. Louis a vibrant economic dynamo of the state.
Keeping in touch with local businesses through the chambers of commerce lets them know what is happening in county government and lets me stay informed on what is top of mind for them.
My focus is big picture, helping the region become and stay strong economically. My position on the Progress 64 Board is critical to achieving that goal.
Helping Our Veterans
I am committed to honoring and assisting those who have served our country. One of my early successes was the implementation of the Veterans Treatment Court to aid veterans struggling with return to civilian life.
Protecting Our Communities
When auto thefts and break-ins started increasing in west county, I brought local law enforcement together to share information and create a public service campaign to remind people to “Lock It Or Lose It.” I recently passed legislation to try to dry up the opportunity to profit from catalytic converter theft.
It’s no secret that the wild deer population is encroaching on our neighborhoods. Continuing what I started in Ballwin, I worked with the Missouri Conservation Department and the County Parks Department to begin an annual, safe, bow hunt in county parks to reduce the cervidae population.
Whether it’s fire fighters or law enforcement, I am committed to making sure our first responders have the training and support they need. (MSD fire training facility dedication in Maryland Heights)
Over the last two years I worked to make sure the residents of District 7 had access to Covid prevention measures while pushing to get county businesses open as soon as safely possible.
Please remember to vote on November 8th!
