When I first ran for office in 2008, I came to each of your doors and promised one thing above everything else: that the greater good of our district and your families would be my first priority. As I prepare to leave office a little over 8 years later, I hope I have proven worthy of the votes you cast for me.

Fortunately for my wife and I, our state constitution prevents me from making this a lifelong career, so my attention has turned to the next generation of leadership for our district and our county. After careful deliberation and prayer, I am throwing my support behind Bill Eigel for State Senate District 23, and Phil Christofanelli for my soon-to-be-former seat, State House District 105.

Bill Eigel is a small business owner who knows what it is like to sign the front of a paycheck. At St. Louis Skylights, Bill has overseen growth of a company that has grown into a national brand, National Sky Light Solutions, with branches in multiple states. St. Louis Skylights not only hires local talent, but makes it a priority to hire veterans--which is not surprising given that Bill wore our nation's uniform for over seven years as an officer in the United States Air Force. Over the past year, I have come to better know Bill, and I have no reservations in supporting him as our next State Senator. He will fight to protect life and end cronyism in Jefferson City. I encourage you to find out more about Bill by going to his website.






Phil Christofanelli has a long and admirable record of civic devotion. A graduate of Washington University, Phil's leadership was recognized very quickly by state and local activists, being elected to the Missouri Republican State Committee at 21 years old and being appointed to the State Executive Committee two years later. Phil has worked across the state of Missouri and in the halls of Congress championing pro-life, small government, conservative principles. He is a small business owner as well, working with like-minded individuals on a national level to put more conservatives in office at all levels of government. He will be a strong voice for pro-life causes, Second Amendment liberties, and reforming our education system to ensure future generations of Missourians are equipped to meet the challenges of a competitive workplace. I hope you'll visit Phil's website to learn more.






Thank you for the privilege of representing you in Jefferson City. With Bill Eigel and Phil Christofanelli in the General Assembly, I have no doubts that our state, our community, and our families will be in excellent hands.

Yours in service,
