Short background:

I’ve been the Ward 2 Alderman for twelve years.  My family and I grew up in South County.  My five sons and one daughter continue to make me proud of their work ethic and their great family unity.

Favorite things about Green Park:

Of course the best part of Green Park are its people.  Who can beat our low crime rate and its great roads.  I am also very proud of the way the citizens are able to enjoy free trash pick-up, recycling, and free yard waste pick-up.  It’s the trails we have made for our citizens to be linked with Trailnet for their walking pleasure.  It’s also the ability to have a beautiful trail to use for their biking or simply walking through our boundless natural settings.

Major and minor changes I would like to see:

The first priority the coming year is to remain focused on the continued development of our City’s primary roads, including the reconstruction of Mueller Road.  I would love to see Mueller Road become a signature boulevard with a very historic look.

 

Comments:
I am extremely proud to serve the residents of the City of Green Park as their Mayor.  I would also like to start spotlighting our local businesses so our citizens know more about their services.

Short background:

I have lived in the City of Green Park since 1993 with my wife, Diane, and my son, Joe. My family has been involved with the City since its inception in 1995.

Favorite thing about Green Park:

Being a part of the City of Green Park offers local control of government. The City is one of the few cities that offers free trash pick up, including yard waste and recycling, and does not impose business licenses.

Major and minor changes I would like to see:

I would like to see more resident participation and involvement in the City. Attending the Board of Aldermen meeting will keep residents aware of what is happening in their city.

Favorite thing about Green Park:

The City government puts the needs and long term benefits of the population first. We plan for the betterment of the whole community. Having Clydesdale Park and Grants Trail within our City is a very good benefit to all, and the fact that our City offers free trash and yard trash pick-up is another plus.

Short background:

Born 1995 in a small town Teocak in Bosnia and Herzegovina during the Bosnian War.  My family and I fled to the United States of America in 1999 and became citizens in 2005.  I am the first in my family to go to college in the U.S. and I received two (2) degrees in the process.  I have been a resident of Green Park for four (4) years and plan on purchasing a house in this area in the near future with my loving wife.

Education:

Attended and graduated from Mehlville High School.

Associate Degree in General Education from St. Louis Community College.

Bachelors of Science in Information Systems from University of Missouri St. Louis.

Work Experience:

My first job was in the City of Green Park nursing home as a dietary aide around 2012.  I am currently an Application Software Developer at Centene and I have done freelance web development in my free time.

I have also been a Vice President of the Information Systems Mentoring Club at UMSL where I helped organize and host three events with 50-70 attendees in a professional setting.

Favorite thing about Green Park:

I love the park in our area.  It has been very helpful for me and my family during this tough time.  The outdoors is something we take for granted sometimes so it’s my favorite part of this city.

Major and minor changes I would like to see in Green Park:

My priority is to improve engagement for the residents of Green Park during this pandemic by bringing new events/holidays to Officer Blake C. Memorial Park.  Due to COVID many events have been canceled this year including the Christmas party, so I would like to turn this bad situation into a better one by hosting holidays outdoors as a community.  This would, of course, be abiding by CDC guidelines and social distancing with a one-way path down the park to see decorations.  Another example is Trunk of Treat or a Trick or Treat trail.

 

Comments:

I’m excited to have been given the opportunity to make a difference in my community.

Getting the final stretches of Lin Valle, Green Park Road, and Lin Ferry completed will be a major accomplishment, as it will just about complete our road project which is an outstanding testimonial to the City’s high standards set on behalf of its citizens.
