It has been my honor to represent the hard working people served by the West County Wastewater District since 2016. My commitment has not wavered and I have always taken the job seriously. Vote for an intelligent and passionate woman who will continue the work to ask questions, do the research and make clear headed, well-reasoned and carefully considered fair decisions for our whole district and our entire community. A woman who will never forget her obligation to the ratepayers, the environment and all the businesses and people served by the West County Wastewater District and the public service employees who help run it.
