I’ve spent my career serving people.
As a doctor, I’ve stepped in to help save lives. As a public servant, I’ve stepped up to root out corruption, and to create a 21st century county government that prioritizes public safety, improves public health, and makes sure all St. Louis County residents have an equal opportunity to succeed.
I was the first person in history to serve as Chair of the St. Louis County Council for three consecutive terms, and I led the Council in holding former County Executive Steve Stenger accountable. The bipartisan coalition of councilmembers I assembled helped uncover Stenger’s corruption, leading to his indictment and resignation.
The County deserves to move forward, and I’m the right person to lead the way.
I’ve served the people of our County as a State Representative, a County Councilmember, and now as County Executive. Those roles aren’t jobs. They’re my way of serving the community that has given so much to me and my family.
Until I took a leave of absence to step into the role of County Executive, I was a full-time anesthesiologist at Mercy Hospital, and an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Anesthesiology and Critical Care at St. Louis University Medical School. I have served as President of the Missouri Society of Anesthesiologists and the Missouri Society of Interventional Pain Physicians, and I currently serve on the Board of Directors of the American Society of Anesthesiologists.
But my greatest accomplishment is raising my three sons, Logan, Luke, and Jake with my wife, Dr. Jennifer Page. Our boys attended public schools in St. Louis County, and grew up enjoying everything our region has to offer, from cross-country running across the County, to rowing in Creve Coeur Lake Park, to Cub Scout and Boy Scout adventures at Beaumont Scout Reservation.
