Really the only Question is -
Do you want someone who will seek and vote your opinion?
 
Or do you want someone who believes you vote for them because of their opinions and does the thinking for you?
 
            We saw through the Better Together Merger Debacle, that when Politicians think they know better for us...the outcome is not good for the people and very profitable for the Politicians.
 
             I am the Candidate that listens to their constituents, and will vote what the people want, just ask my current Mayor and City Administrator.
 
     In 2016 I ran for County Council, not much has changed, except the person I am running against.
         The County still has Budget Problems that must be resolved, I am awesome on Budgets
         Assessments are a disaster and we need the State Auditor to Audit that department to restore public trust,
         The County is still trying to tell landlords how they can run their properties, with Clancy's New Bill
         The County is losing Businesses, Residents and Revenues to surrounding Counties… In my city we just turned the tide on this problem and our economy is stronger, our residents incomes are up and unemployment is down.
         The County Infrastructure needs to be addressed desperately. Roads, Sidewalks and especially our Ground Water surrounding the areas of the Westlake Landfill. The bottom of this landfill is limestone, so uranium has been spreading through the ground since the 70’s.
         Their attempts to use Prop P for anything but Police are a slap in the face to all of us who voted for this.

         41% of you Believed in me in 2016, when I ran for this office for the 1st time.

         I hope our success in my city proves to you I am the right person for the task at hand.
     Please review my Accomplishments since at www.amypoelker.com and remember…
 
Amy is the Candidate that with the help of the many, in her Stop Merger LLCs., TEAM...
WON THE BATTLE AGAINST BETTER TOGETHER on their City/County Merger Amendment!!!

             I say battle because it is not over, a meeting is already scheduled for Aug 13th at the City Library.
Where was my opponent during this time? – Working for the Law Firm that represents, Better Together! 
 
Who will keep you informed on this and fight with you to stop it – Amy will!
 
As an Alderman in my city, we have returned St Ann's Economic Growth not just at the Crossings but throughout our city.
         Reduced its Unemployment by 6%,
         The average household income has risen from 35,000 to 44,000,
         Property Values are up, up, and up, 
         In 2018 we were voted the 7th Safest City in the State
         St Ann is the 17th most diverse city in the State.
         Our school districts are also benefitting from our success – through added revenues and SRO’s…
         Pattonville is in the top 20 of the state
         Ritenour’s Accreditation has risen from 71% to 88%.
         This assists the Community with housing where we are seeing an increase in Occupancy inspections through which our housing stock can be maintained better.
More Accomplishments are linked on my website. www.amypoelker.com
 
              Now I would like to take my 8+ years of experience and continue my work to help all our communities at a greater level.
 
            I will continue to use my past experiences and your advice/questions/concerns-to guide my way thru it. I will not be a politician. You cannot say one thing and do another in my book. And if I don't know something, I am not afraid to admit it, but I will follow up with someone that does know the answer.
A good leader does not need to know all the answers...but they do have to know how to find them.
           St Ann and I have worked together for the last 8+ years, and my citizens have re-elected me to a 5th Term.
 
Looking back at where we started in 2011 and seeing where we are now…. it’s happening in St. Ann!
 
            I hope I can gain your support and the support of others, in my work towards the future. I will aggressively work with both parties to push thru the success of the entire region...it must happen NOW; this next election is very important to District 2 and St Louis County as a whole.
We must bring jobs and families back to our region, for long term success. We can no longer work to just get by on a week to week basis.
 We must think proactively and into the future needs of our young adults and children who will inherit what we leave them with.

 
Let’s clean up this mess!
                        Vote 4 Amy on Aug 6th.

 
Thank you for your consideration,
 
Amy

Led the Fight against the City County Merger

2019 - In January, Better Together announced their plan to place a Constitutional Amendment on the ballot in November 2020 to create a new Metro City form of government which would in the end ELIMINATE municipal governments by merging St Louis City and St Louis County. As shown above I have been involved in this since 2012. When the MML voted to use the Freeholders Method in the current MO. Constitution I held Petition signings on Feb 9,19 March 19 as well as spoke at meeting in Overland on the Amendment and what it did and Petitions signed there. In total I turned in 22 pages of Petition signatures for the Freeholders Process. Which led to 2 public speaking events at Ritenour High Schools Auditorium on March 15 and April 1st for residents to learn about the amendment and sign petitions. Have met a ton of resources through this fight and most recently was invited to a Kirkwood Meeting to assist. Am running Statewide ads on Facebook and Blipboard ads to work to reach outstate MO. with our message of DO NOT MERGE US.

On May 6th Better Together withdrew their petition to Force a Merger of St Louis City and St Louis County. We WON...the battle, though I fear the War is still at hand.

As for Why Amy today - 2019...

You will not find a stronger fighter for you the resident, as proven through my past performance in my 8 years as an Alderman. Unopposed since my 1st Election in 2011.
I did run as a Write-In in 2010 and though I lost that attempt, I received 144 votes and was a mere 37 away from a win.

I played a leading role in the Fight Against Better Together's Statewide Amendment to Merge St Louis City with St Louis County. I have followed their work since 2013. Thankfully we Won that battle, but they are already attempting to work a new way to make their ideas happen.

I played a role in getting the Westlake Landfill Cleaned Up, though there is still the Ground Water issue to deal with.
For me it started in Jan of 2015, when a 7.5 mile Pipeline was run through all of our municipalities, without informing us as to why...
My township Committeeman asked me to speak on this topic, which gained his interest and he held our next meeting at a Westlake Meeting. At that point he used his influence with Roy Blunt to get the process started to get this issue solved. Roy Blunt got SB2306 passed, the EPA forced to address. I also spoke before the EPA and led the rally to get others to email/speak. Amongst many other things between now and 1/1/15.

Then there is Economic Development, aside from St Ann's Successes, I assisted and continue to assist Dan Buck's PowerPlex project. Though this project will not be located in my city, it is of huge importance to North County and frankly the entire Region. It's Economic Impact will be huge to St. Louis County as a whole.
