O’Fallon, MO – Bob Howell, a member of Plumbers and Pipefitters Local 562 and a third-term O’Fallon councilman endorsed by the Greater St. Louis Labor Council and the Tri-County Labor Club, will be on the April 4 Ballot running for mayor of the City of O’Fallon, MO.

Howell is challenging incumbent Mayor Bill Hennessy.

Howell, also a member of the Tri-County Labor Club, and former member of the city’s Planning and Zoning Commission, has earned a reputation as the “go to” councilman who gets results for working families.

Recently, Howell was instrumental in securing the Project Labor Agreement achieved for the city’s new City Justice Center securing a 100-percent union PLA. He has long been vocal about saving jobs in the city, and works to see that those working for the city get a fair shake.

Early in his city representation, he found millions of dollars of unnecessary spending in the budget and moved that money into the streets and road funds to get the much-needed road repairs done throughout the city’s subdivisions and arterial roadways.

Advocacy for working men and women starts at the street level in local elections. As O’Fallon’s “go to” councilman, Howell said he looks forward to serving as the City’s “go to” mayor.

Be sure to vote in the April 4 municipal election.
