Alex Lange, UFCW 655 union representative running for the St. Louis County Council’s 6th District, has received a major endorsement from the County Council’s chairwoman, Councilwomen Lisa Clancy.

“Alex Lange would provide a much needed new perspective and fresh voice to the St. Louis County Council. Alex is not a career politician and understands what it is like to fight for working families. He has represented and helped protect workers on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Noting that Lange “Is the voice we need (on the Council) for working people,” she added. “Alex is a parent to young children just like me. We understand what it is like to live and grow in St. Louis County with a young family and we want our County to be the best place to raise them. I am proud to endorse Alex Lange for Sixth District St. Louis County Council.”

Responding to that solid endorsement, Lange said, “I am ready to work hard to rebuild trust county government. The time is now for leadership that isn’t entrenched in the past, we must look forward to build a county that works for our families.”

Lange faces two opponents in the Aug. 4 primary.
