ST. CHARLES COMMUNITY COLLEGE

Board of Trustees • 6-year term

Rose Mack*

I have filed for the position of trustee for St. Charles Community College. As a current member of the board, it’s been a privilege to help strengthen the public image of the college over the past few years. We’ve balanced the budget every year and also launched a fantastic new campus for nursing and allied health. It is an important time for continuity as the school is moving forward, since we are also conducting a search for a new college president. As current president of the trustees, I am actively involved in the search. We expect the search at a minimum to continue until the end of June.

• • •

I am presently serving as president of the Board of Trustees, elected by my fellow board members. During my tenure, we have added a beautiful walk/bike path to the front of the campus at no cost to the college, and have recently partnered with the county to place College Park in a currently unused area of the campus. Under my presidency, we added the Pledge of Allegiance and public comment to our board meeting agendas; with the comment section so your voices can better be heard. I’m very excited for how we can grow in the future and continue to offer students affordable quality education.

Arnie C. Dienoff

The college is vital to the economic growth of the county. The ethical conduct of the board has been questioned.

Items to be addressed include selection and hiring of the college president with a fair contract; ensuring total accountability for every program, department and employee to ensure transparency, questioning spending practices; advocating for taxpayers and students of the district; ensuring that the results of the state audit will be fully corrected and implemented; ensuring that a fair price and value is spent on the new school of skilled nursing building.

I want to ensure my kids, your kids, and our community continue to benefit from amazing Francis Howell schools. Professionally, my real estate industry and community involvement provide insightful perspective. As president-elect of the St. Charles Realtors® my priorities include keeping taxes affordable and property values appreciating.

Kimberlyann Granger

I am running for this office as a way to serve our community with my experience and education. The purpose of the elected board is to represent the interests of the taxpayers, rather than any special interest groups. Our district is dealing with a financial crisis, and it is time for a positive change toward making conservative, fiscally responsible decisions that put student success first. I would also like to help our district increase the number of graduates who are college-ready in mathematics and English so that those students who choose to go to college can place into college-level courses.

• • •

My education and work experience have prepared me to serve our community in this capacity. I have taught in K-8 schools, middle schools, and community colleges, and I have a passion for student success. I hold a doctoral degree in educational leadership, which provides me with the understanding of how schools work and enables me to make research-based decisions that support student success. My master’s degree in mathematics helps me make logical, analytical decisions. I am the president of the Missouri Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges, an active member of our community, and a community college mathematics professor.

Cynthia Bice*

[Questionnaire not returned]

Mike Hoehn

I’m running for the board because a quality education is the single most important thing we can provide our children. My first priority is the safety and academic success of our students. This cannot be achieved without getting the district budget under control. The current board gave raises to staff creating a deficit budget that is depleting district’s reserves. Board cuts to staffing and additional proposed cuts including the elimination of most bussing will create issues with student safety and academic success. Third, we need to maintain local control over our curriculum instead of national standards.

• • •

I care about the students and the district. I served on the Francis Howell School Board for six years when we balanced the budget. I’m an active volunteer in the district and a member of the facilities committee. I have served on the community relations and communications committees, the district design team and safety task force. I actively volunteered in my children’s schools for over 20 years. I have a practical and common sense approach to issues and will be fiscally conservative with the use of your tax dollars to maintain the focus on student safety and achievement.

I want to help my community and the city. I have been on the council for 10 years and have been part of many improvements. I feel I can make more improvements happen.

Ward 2

Tom (Duke) Herweck

As a 15-year resident of O’Fallon, a father of four and a CPA, I have a committed desire to keep O’Fallon a safe and thriving city. I will base all my decisions and actions on ensuring that O’Fallon is a safe, responsible and viable community, adhering to the needs of the community, being accessible to residents of Ward 2, educating myself on all issues facing the city and working to ensure that the city’s budget is handled in a fiscally responsible manner.

• • •

My qualifications are a bachelor of science degree in business administration/accounting and an MBA. I am also a CPA. As a 15-year resident of O’Fallon, I have personally witnessed O’Fallon grow and proposer from a small to midsize city to the second largest city in the metropolitan area.

Jim Pepper*

I am running because I haven’t finished accomplishing what I started out to do, that is bring proven business practices to city government through the application of lean government [and] to continue to aggressively look for ways to reduce expenditures of our tax money along with the following: infrastructure upgrades –water, sewer and streets; stormwater control; and salary increases to be based on a performance-based system rather than the longevity-based system we currently use.

• • •

My qualifications include beings a former councilman in Normandy, Missouri; being on the Charter Commissioner for the city of O’Fallon; having served almost six years as councilman in O’Fallon and almost 20 years as a trustee or chair of trustees in homeowner associations; and being a corporate outsource manager for Xerox Corporation.

Ward 3

Richard (Rick) Battelle*

Ward 4

Jeff Schwentker*

I truly believe that I work for the people that put me in office and I have moved the city forward in a positive way. My priorities are to repair/replace our aging water and sewer lines, with advanced technology that will carry the city for the next 30-plus years; stormwater management, as the flooding has grown in O’Fallon I must continue to take bigger steps to keep it under control; continue to implement more transportation projects, consisting of concrete and asphalt programs. I was successful in securing the funds, last budget to move these projects forward.

• • •

My qualifications include having served as president of my homeowners association for 10 years; having served as an elder in my church for 12 years; and as a life long resident of O’Fallon, I have witnessed growth and change in O’Fallon for over five decades.

Greg Fisher

I am running for the O’Fallon City Council to make O’Fallon a better place to live, work and enjoy for each resident and visitor. My priorities are to slow down vehicles in our neighborhoods. This has been a major problem for years and has not improved. We also need to spread word that O’Fallon is open for business. With the help of the council, city workers, chamber of commerce and others we can attract large, well-paying, corporate companies. I support higher pay for local law enforcement. Starting pay for O’Fallon police officers is substantially less than neighboring communities including St. Peters, St. Charles and St. Charles County.

• • •

New ideas, fresh perspective and great business acumen makes me the best candidate. Since graduating from Lindenwood University in 2003 with a degree in marketing, the experience I have developed in business will be of benefit to the entire community and provide a boost to the city council. The incumbent has done a good job during his tenure, but we can do better. He has had 10 years to make O’Fallon better. Limited terms in government positions is best for all citizens and guarantees the official is acting in the residents’ best interest and not pushing an agenda.

David Maritz

I’m a retired city of O’Fallon employee and feel I could be an asset to the current council. Priority one is to get a recreation center on the north side of town. Priority two is street repairs and installation of sidewalks. Priority three is to continue to get law enforcement the needed training and equipment to address an unpredictable society.

• • •
