April Rivera

"I am running for school board in Fort Zumwalt because I believe public schools are vital to the success of our communities. I believe they should be protected and supported. I am a mother to 2 sons and a wife to an Army veteran. I have returned to college to get a degree in public policy. I can't think of a better way to use my education to help improve the policies of Fort Zumwalt."

County Council District 5:
2A9A4939 - Taylor MacMann.JPG

Joshua Becker

"My main focus on the council is going to be backing our first responders, while ensuring that our parks are clean and safe, maintaining our infrastructure without raising taxes and having honest and transparent communication with the county constituents. Everyone in the county has a voice, and everyone’s voice deserves to be heard!

 

As a life-long resident of St. Charles County, I have attended Twin Chimneys Elementary, Fort Zumwalt South Middle and I graduated from Fort Zumwalt West High School in 2005. I received bachelor's degree in healthcare administration from University of Phoenix and a master's in healthcare administration from Southern New Hampshire University.


Currently I am the administrator for a healthcare organization that provides medical services for patients on Medicare and patients over 65. My passion is being able to help the less fortunate find healthcare services and making healthcare attainable for everyone who wants it. I have been married to my husband, Matthew, for 4 years and we currently live in Saint Peters."

Eric Nowicki

"I am running for Missouri State Representative because I believe Jefferson City has lost focus of who they actually serve, the people of Missouri. If elected, my priorities will be to lower sales tax, lower utility rates, increase elderly assistance, increase childcare assistance, lower the cost of state funded colleges and universities and auditing the state budget to ensure that your tax dollars are spent responsibility."

Jessica DeVoto

"I moved to St. Charles in 2015 after graduating from Saint Louis University with a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics and a Master’s in Business Administration from Maryville University. I have experience working in customer service, bookkeeping, and property management.

My primary concern is the rights and personal liberties of her constituents— including women, ethnic minorities, LGBTQ individuals, individuals with disabilities, low-income families, etc.— not the interests of large corporations. In addition, I believe that expanding healthcare, empowering unions, and investing in education are critical to making our great state greater yet.

House District 104:
Greg2 - Copy - Gregory Upchurch.jpg

Gregory A. Upchurch

"Healthcare is our greatest threat to the safety of all Missouri residents. Medicaid expansion is essential! Everyone should be fully covered and free. Campaign finance reform could have paid for it all.

 

I hold a M.P.A. degree and believe early education is essential, governmental transparency is a must and happiness attainable. I have taught as college faculty, K-12 and English internationally.

 

Labor builds this country, while transportation provides for workers and goods to get to market. Affordable housing shortages means families go without. I have housing executive board experience for MSU and MO ETA. I would like to explore building code legislation, subsidies, and tax breaks for those who build handicap into new construction and cater to housing issues for our elderly.

 

I am a business owner and have done a great deal of national and international travel. I believe people should have choices in life! I would like to increase voter access and have election day as a national holiday! Voting is one of the only rights expressly granted to us as Americans and we should use it.

 

Closing motto: If we do not take care of the environment, eventually the environment will take care of us. #missouriisforeveryone"
