John Diehl For Missouri State Representative - Home
The single, most important issue facing the State of
Missouri in 2010 is the economy. Without keeping and attracting
businesses that provide good paying jobs:
We can’t fund our schools properly,
We won’t see a turnaround in the
We can’t afford to expand
accessible healthcare for those who need it most,
We won’t be able to invest in
reliable, alternative energy resources, and
We will continue to see holes in
the “safety net” for seniors, children, and the disabled.
It has never been more
clear that the challenges we face in state government and in every
citizen’s pocketbook is tied to bettering the financial fortunes of
Missouri. That’s why I want to be your State Representative.
As a business attorney,
I helped bring nearly $500 million in new business construction to St.
Louis County. These projects mean thousands of temporary and permanent
jobs in our communities. They feed families, fill gas tanks, and pay
taxes for our schools and emergency services.
As a former alderman and president of the board of Town & Country,
I understand we need to maintain quality, vital services without
raising taxes and keeping within a balanced budget. What we need isn’t
bigger government. What we need is smarter government.
As a parent of three
children, I know the economy affects us all—even those with established
jobs. We are all on a budget and it is being stretched in every
possible way. No one and no business is immune.
To succeed in a global
economy, St. Louis County and the State of Missouri must put their
shoulders to the wheel and shovels in the ground. I will be sharing my
thoughts with you in the coming weeks. Together, we will build a better
Missouri from the ground up.
