Dear Residents of St. Louis County District 2,

 

Every time we are asked to go out to the polls to Vote we are given promise after promise. Then we are typically disappointed. Today I come to you like others before me, asking for your Vote.

 

My promises I will keep simple:

 

  • My Votes will protect Residents, Businesses and Municipalities from Government Intrusion.

  • I will Research and push to restructure the Budget - my experience as an Alderman for 5.5 years and a Restaurant Manager for 23 years will come in quite handy here.

  • I will Work to bring JOBS to St Louis County as we have for the City of St Ann. Have you seen the construction at “The Crossings of Northwest” this year?

  • I will listen to your views, opinions, frustrations and needs, and take on whatever new legislation is needed to protect the people or eliminate legislation that hurts the people like the issue with ALL Tickets being a Criminal Offense, this our State Legislators should have changed a long time ago.

  • I will continue my work on the West-lake Landfill, this issue is the responsibility of the Federal Government however at the St Louis County level I believe a more detailed Emergency Plan should be constructed that coordinates with the County’s Municipal Governments. This should be done for any Emergency: Tornado, Earthquake, Westlake, Floods…

  • I will VOTE AGAINST “The City/County Merger” ensuring Parkway, Pattonville, Hazelwood, and Ritenour remain under Local Control. As well as the Fire Districts, Police Departments and Local Governments and their Services to the People.

  • The job of the County Councilman is no different than that of an Alderman in my city, just a larger scale of population. It should be about “WORKING FOR THE PEOPLE, to make St. Louis County a strong and business friendly environment, thus providing JOBS for the people of St Louis County -North, South, East and West while assisting in keeping our County Schools Strong, our citizens Safe, our infrastructure strong, and providing necessary services to the People.”

  • Here is a link to some YouTube Videos I have done. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLcyAqtzic5ybmfE9j8aU1nOI3a2bzXA6M

    I believe we need to rebuild and restructure the County’s budget so that wasteful spending is eliminated and the County’s infrastructure and personnel are reinvested in.

     

    You see in my own City of St Ann, I have already seen and been through many of the things that are happening in the County today. The County’s revenue is declining as businesses choose elsewhere to locate like St Charles or Jefferson County. They may or may not see this coming – But this is what we experienced with the loss of Northwest Plaza, they say History Repeats itself if we are not watching - instead of Thinking Outside the Box to do something about it, they cover it up with Grandiose Spending - Millions of Dollars on a Soccer Field, 3 Million for a Metro Link Study which if built would again take Millions if not Billions of our tax payer dollars. Etc., etc.…

     

    I wish to serve the people as their St Louis County Councilman because I believe that those who govern over us, should be listening to us.

    This is NOT what I or quite a few of my residents have experienced from MY OPPONENT.         

    Sincerely,
    Amy Poelker

Estimados Residentes del Condado de San Luis, Distrito 2
Cada vez que se le pide que vaya a las urnas para votar se nos da una promesa tras otra. Entonces estamos normalmente decepcionado. Hoy vengo a ti como otros antes que yo, pidiendo su voto.
Mis promesas voy a seguir sencilla:
• Mis Votos protegerán residentes, empresas y municipios del Gobierno de intrusiones.
• Voy a impulsar la investigación y para reestructurar el presupuesto - mi experiencia como concejal durante 5,5 años y un restaurante director durante 23 años vendrá en muy útil aquí.
• Voy a trabajar para crear empleos en el Condado de San Luis como lo hemos hecho para la ciudad de Santa Ana. ¿Has visto la construcción en "Las Cruces del noroeste" este año?
• Voy a escuchar sus puntos de vista, opiniones, frustraciones y necesidades, y tomar en cualquier nueva legislación que se necesita para proteger a las personas o eliminar la legislación que perjudica a la gente le gusta el tema con todos los billetes de ser un delito, esto nuestros legisladores estatales deben tener cambiado hace mucho tiempo.
• Voy a seguir mi trabajo en el relleno sanitario West-lago, este problema es responsabilidad del Gobierno Federal, sin embargo a nivel de condado de St Louis Creo que un Plan de Emergencia más detallada debe ser construido de manera que se coordina con los gobiernos municipales del Condado. Esto debe hacerse para cualquier emergencia: tornado, terremoto, Westlake, inundaciones ...
• Voy a votar en contra de "la ciudad / condado de Fusión" garantizar Parkway, Pattonville, Hazelwood, y Ritenour permanecer bajo control local. Así como los distritos de bomberos, policía y los gobiernos locales y sus servicios a la gente.
• El trabajo del concejal del condado no es diferente a la de un concejal en mi ciudad, a una escala mayor de la población. Debe tratarse de "trabajar por el pueblo, para que el Condado de San Luis un ambiente agradable fuerte y de negocios, por lo tanto proporcionar puestos de trabajo para la gente de San Luis Condado -Norte, Sur, Este y Oeste mientras que ayuda a mantener nuestro Escuelas Country Strong, seguros a nuestros ciudadanos, nuestra infraestructura fuerte, y la prestación de servicios necesarios para las personas. "
• Aquí hay un enlace a algunos vídeos de YouTube que he hecho. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLcyAqtzic5ybmfE9j8aU1nOI3a2bzXA6M
Creo que necesitamos para reconstruir y reestructurar el presupuesto del Condado de modo que los gastos innecesarios se elimina y la infraestructura y el personal del Condado se reinvierten en.
Se puede ver en mi propia ciudad de Santa Ana, ya he visto y pasado por muchas de las cosas que están sucediendo en el condado de hoy. Los ingresos del Condado está disminuyendo ya que las empresas eligen a otro lugar para ubicar como San Carlos o el condado de Jefferson. Pueden o no pueden ver el próximo - Pero esto es lo que hemos experimentado con la pérdida de Northwest Plaza, dicen sí mismo la historia se repite, si no está viendo - en lugar de pensar fuera de la caja para hacer algo al respecto, lo cubren con el gasto grandioso - millones de dólares en un campo de fútbol, ​​3 millones para un estudio de Enlace metro, que si se construye volvería a tomar millones, si no miles de millones de dólares de nuestros contribuyentes. Etcétera etcétera.…
 
Deseo servir a la gente como su St Louis concejal del condado, porque creo que los que gobiernan sobre nosotros, debe escuchar a nosotros.
Esto no es lo que yo o unos cuantos de mis residentes he experimentado desde mi oponente.
Sinceramente,
Amy Poelker

What are your top three priorities?

*My votes will protect residents, businesses and Municipalities from Government Intrusion. *Through Economic Development and Community Involvement Rebuild the Counties revenue stream for Budget Management. *Examine, Restructure & Prioritize the Budget. Here my 5.5 yrs as Alderman and 23 yrs of Restaurant Management will come in handy. Stay in the know Download my Phone APP

What would you do to establish a cohesive and balanced budget?

1. I would need to get the full picture of the various departments within the Counties structure. 2. Sit down with the County Auditor, review the Budget line item by line item to get a full understanding of where every penny goes. 3. Work w/ Council to Prioritize and restructure the Budget, GASB met, for the needs of the residents and businesses under County Government.


without 375 characters this is what it would have said

1. My Votes will protect Residents, Businesses and Municipalities from Government Intrusion. Here we can make it easier for businesses to start up in the County. And to ensure Parkway, Pattonville, Hazelwood, and my district Ritenour remain under Local Control. As well as the Fire Districts, Police Departments and Local Governments and their Services to the People. As I have in the City of St Ann I will actively seek your participation in Votes that come before me. Through my Email list, Facebook/Twitter Pages and local newspapers. Communication with the people is a must!

2. Re-build the reputation of the County as a great place to live and work, thru community involvement and Economic Development throughout the entire county. N-S-E-W which in turn will build the County revenue and aid in Budget management. Have you seen what has been taking place in the City of St Ann? A community that works together-we have some great Food Truck Events sponsored by the St Ann Business Association which I created and found great management for in 2012. And “The Crossings at Northwest”, has JOBS popping out of the ground. Stop in sometime.

3. I will Research and push to restructure the County Budget - my experience as an Alderman for 5.5 years and my 23 years as a General Manager in the Restaurant industry will come in quite handy here. The job of the County Councilman is NOT much different than that of the Alderman. Running our County should not be about your political affiliation. It should be about “WORKING FOR THE PEOPLE, to make St. Louis County a strong and business friendly environment, thus providing JOBS for the people of St Louis County -North, South, East and West while assisting in keeping our County Schools Strong, our citizens Safe, our infrastructure strong, and providing necessary services to the People.”

It has been brought to my attention that quite a bit of the County's Budget relies on Grants to fulfill the budgeted needs of the County.

I consider this a dangerous practice. A grant is only as good as the current legislator's in office. Should they choose to repeal the Grants in the County's Budget, the County's Budget would be underfunded.

This happened most recently when the Obama Administration eliminated the DEA and ATF Seizure Program. This cost multiple Governing bodies to have to adjust their budgets to meet them last year.

The other issue with this would be that the County must spend thousands of hours in Grant Writing.
