Fox 2 News Showcase

Here I want to inform you of some of my accomplishment’s over the last 6.5 years 2011-2017 as the Ward 2 Alderwoman of the City of St Ann.


As a result of SB5 & SB572 and especially the new court mandates set by the courts, a million dollar loss in revenue made it clear that if we are to maintain our current level of policing we would have to be willing to pay for it. The BOA voted to put that question to you the voters in April 2017. The result of that vote was 61% yes. Thank you for supporting our Police Dept.


  • I Negotiated a 2.5% SAVINGS for the City of St Ann SENIORS on their Trash bill above their 10% off, for years 2015-2020.


  • Requested and Held a Public Forum on the Westlake Pipeline built thru our cities along St. Charles Rock Road. https://youtu.be/dXfiy7Fn6g4 and introduced my Airport Township Committeeman to the topic which in turn brought Senator Roy Blunts participation and a Bill before the Senate s2306 which passed and is waiting in the House of Representatives for passing as bill 4100. Also informed Dawn Chapman that Maria Chappelle Nadal was one of Bridgeton’s Senators and would be a good source for bringing attention to the issues of the Westlake Landfill. Today this Landfill has been placed on the top 10 Epa list, with announcements coming soon as to how they will address this old nuclear waste site.
  • Fundraisers for citizens in need ie; Women whose wrist was broken in a robbery on Ashby, 2015 Christmas Eve Fire, Family run over on the sidewalk by the Heroin overdose, St Damian Fire, another Ward 3 Fire.


  • Continue to Fight Against the City/County Merger push...They are pushing for One School District similar to Chicago's which is 70 million in the RED, One Police Dept., One Fire Department, One Parks Department, One Streets Dept., One Executive Office/Mayor. They expect us to believe this will be less expensive, but have left out information that differs from their agenda as seen here. http://citiesstrong.com/studies/  where 589 Million was left out of their study of Indianapolis versus St. Louis. Have you seen the condition of St Louis Cities infrastructure? Many of the munis have Services that St Louis County does not offer those would be lost. Your Government is only as good as the people in place. Current leadership would suggest that costs are unlikely to reduce/remain reduced. When the city took over their police dept. from the State of Missouri they claimed the citizens would see a 6 Million Dollar Savings…Current leadership is also NOT LISTENING to the people, as a matter of fact in one ST Louis County Council meeting they told a gentleman that speaking before the Council was only to be heard…NOT for them to answer his questions. http://nocofoshojrvbc.tripod.com/amypoelker/id75.html

  • Currently have a poll running on Facebook throughout St Louis City and St Louis County to determine whether or not the citizens of these two regions desire to merge or not.


  • Active member of the Economic Development Committee where in 2012 we successfully gained a Developer for Northwest Plaza now called “The Crossings at Northwest”. Current new businesses are Menards, Rulers, Regions, Raising Canes, Generation 3 QT, Sprint, Here Today, Bob’s Discount Furniture, Starbucks, Charter Spectrum and their Training Center, Election Board, Work Force Mgmt., and a Satellite Assessor’s Office, Lady Jane's, Cricket, 3-4 other Call Centers in the 500 Building and more to come ___________ and in other areas of St Ann, IE; Aarons Rent to Own, St Vincent Depaul, Family Dollar, Bus Loop Burger, Dollar Plus, SABA Pet Store, Brooks Bible College, Aldi’s, St. Louis Black Belt Academy, ATA Tae Kwondo, Caterer, Vape Shop, Oriental Dr, 3-4 Hair/Nail Salons, another Dance Studio.
  • 2012 Fought successfully to get St Louis County to add a 2nd Tornado Alarm Tower to the City of St Ann, we could not hear the one alarm placed on the east side of St. Ann. http://fox2now.com/2012/03/01/demand-for-weather-radios-spike-after-recent-storms/
  • Created the St. Ann Business Association,  https://www.facebook.com/St-Ann-Business-Association-202804379876362/
  • Assisted citizen Maurice Gayden in his fight to Save our St. Ann Quik Trip, though we lost this battle originally, we won in the end when our Quik Trip returned shortly after.
  • Before I got in office I assisted an Alderwoman Sherry Hoffman in her fight to prevent Prop S, a street prop that would have had St Ann residents paying to fix city streets for 20 years, so that by the time they were paid off…they would need to be fixed again. We successfully defeated this Prop. It has recently been replaced with a TDD, ensuring revenue for street maintenance into the next 40 years in our business district and not a property tax.
  • In 2017 the residents decided NOT to do a City-wide TDD to solve all the Street, Sidewalk, Trees maintenance issues into the future. We must seek alternative methods to fix our roads.
  • Suggested and BOA agreed to a Street Committee to review our Budget for areas to cut, to move towards street work. I was given Lead, requested 2 residents per ward. 8/28/17
  • Assisted the St Ann Business Association in establishing their “Food Truck Events”. Most recently attained City Sponsorship for the Event. and here in 2017 the Parks Department has adopted the Event to combine it with their Party in the Park Events in Tiemeyer Park for a Grander event plus of course Combining it with their Halloween Event in October. https://www.facebook.com/events/474164286127957/
