Connor Valenti couldn't get a job at Dierbergs, but ended up a hard worker on newly elected Missouri Representative Bob Burns' successful campaign.
When South County Democrat Bob Burns ran successfully for State Representative in the new 93rd District, he had help from a DeSmet senior with his own hopes for a future in politics. Connor Valenti is a straight-A student, but couldn’t get hired by Dierbergs, Burns said, but he and Burns said he found the right job, in politics. Valenti worked for Burns's campaign since before the primary elections. "I went door to door with him when I had time, straight through the summer," Valenti said. "I was knocking on doors, talking to people." Valenti said he worked the polls all day in the primary election, but couldn't in the final because he had school. Valenti’s mother worked for Burns six years ago when Burns ran against Republican Jim Lembke …

All those hours campaigning, walking door-to-door, in the heat, in the cold, trying to defeat Tony Leech for the 93rd District seat in the state house of representatives—it would all be for nothing if Burns and the voters of his district were accidentally given the ballots for the 92nd District, as Burns was. The 92nd District covers Lemay and parts of Affton. “If I would lose a race over something like that, it would …

Burns won by 404 ballots and had 61.45 percent of the vote and will face Republican Tony Leech in November, who ran unopposed in the primary.

Pauline Siebel is supporting Bob Burns over Joe Monticello for the Democratic nomination in the 93rd District covering parts of Mehlville, Lemay and Affton.
I would like to say a few words about Bob Burns; he is running for State Representative in the 93rd District. I had the pleasure of meeting Bob Burns when I worked for the Affton School District that was about 22 years ago. Bob was on the School Board at the time and getting to know him he always had the children’s best interest first and the community he grew up in. Bob was always involved in community events and he was always working to improve Affton because he loves the people here and in anything he is involved in I know him to put 100 percent into what he believes in. Bob loves this country when he gets involved in something he works hard to get the job done. He takes time to listen to what you have to say and if he can help he …

Bob Burns is without a doubt, the best possible choice for the Missouri House of Representatives 93rd District representative. His work ethic, honesty, and genuine concern for getting to the core of issues make him the perfect candidate!

The last of the disincorporated municipality’s business is set to close March 13.
Almost a year after the surprise write-in winners of St. George’s municipal election launched a campaign to dissolve the city, the tiny government’s final business will soon be put to rest. Most notably this final transition will resolve the fates of the city’s two major properties: the house that has served as city hall and a small park with a playground. According to St. George resident Bob Burns, the executive in charge of the disincorporation process, the city’s park will be taken into and maintained by the St. Louis County park system. City hall, meanwhile, will be converted into a 24 hour St. Louis County police substation for the neighborhood, commanded under the Affton/Southwest 3rd Precinct. The fate of the park in particular was …
