Happy Birthday, President Harry S. Truman!

Thursday, we kicked off our weekend-long birthday celebration for Harry Truman. Our tour begins at Truman’s Birthplace, which is a historical site managed by the Department of Missouri State Parks. Democrats gathered to learn more about Truman’s historical journey from Lamar, Missouri to Washington D.C. started. Chairman Russ Carnahan and Vice Chair Yvonne Reeves want to thank those who showed up!

Friday, we are heading to Independence to tour the Truman Presidential Library! Chairman Carnahan will welcome Congressman Emanuel Cleaver II, who will be our special guest! We will begin at the Truman Library at 4:00 p.m., and then head to Ophelia’s Restaurant & Inn for an MDP Fundraiser. 

 Saturday, we will round out festivities heading East to Saint Louis. You will find Democrats at the Historic Train Cars & Platform at the St. Louis Union Station. You won’t want to miss this event, because we will be joined by special guests Mayor Tishaura Jones and St. Louis County Executive Sam Page!

Message from Bob Ford, Oakville Township Committeeman

First of all I want to wish you all a happy 4th of July.  Our meeting Wednesday, July 6th is in Bee Tree Park in the lower pavilion starting at 6:30.  Joan Barry, Oakville Township Committeewoman and I are furnishing Ted Drewes for the meeting.  We have invited many candidates to the meeting.

Also, Oakville Township needs to provide a silent auction item for the St. Louis County Democratic Gala.  We are requesting our members bring a gift card from any where (Quick trip, restaurants, Cash cards, or scratch off lotto cards just a few examples) or just donate a few dollars for our Oakville Township Board that will have all the cards attached to it.  Let us show that Oakville has Democrats to be heard from in St. Louis County.

See you at the Park!!!

State Representative Candidates for Oakville

Our Oakville Township has been split more than before into two legislative districts.  The 95th which has been our primary district and candidate Ann Zimpher is putting together a strong campaign.  More of Oakville has been looped into the 94th legislative district.  We now have a candidate to run in that 94th district.

We would like to introduce Kyle Kerns candidate for the 94th district.  He waited to file because of the uncertainty of the map lines.  He grew up on a farm in rural northwest Missouri.  His Dad was a farmer and his mother was a school teacher.  I think that this is a big positive for his campaign due to the attack on Education and Farmer’s rights.  He graduated from Missouri State University and interned for a democratic State Representative in the 2000 legislative session in Jefferson City. 

Kyle is currently a CPA and the CFO and head of operations for a Cultivation Capital.  A Local venture capital firm.  He spent 15 years at Edward Jones home office.  He has lived in Oakville for 20 years.  He is busy setting up his campaign and ready to start meeting the voters of Oakville.

Be at our April 6 meeting and meet the candidate for the 94th District and 95th District.
