In an email blast, former Rep. Bill Otto announces that he will seek to return to the state House.
Friends, neighbors, and colleagues have asked me to serve once again in the Missouri House of Representatives, this time in District 65. District 65 includes most of the City of St. Charles and extends north to the confluence of the Missouri and the mighty Mississippi.
After a lifetime of service starting when I was a teen in the Navy and continuing through 20 years as an Air Traffic Controller at Lambert, followed by 4 years of service in the Missouri House of Representatives, I’m honored to announce that I am ready, willing, and able to represent you.
But politics is not about me, it’s about you….
Otto previously represented House 70. In 2016, he opted to run for congress (unsuccessfully against Ann Wagner) instead of running for re-election.
Rep. Tom Hannegan currently represents House 65. I have always thought of St. Charles as a Republican stronghold. However Dems are hopeful that the environment this year will put these seats in play.
