Councilwoman Lisa Clancy has endorsed Alex Lange in the Democratic primary for the sixth district St. Louis County Council Race. This comes on the heels of the St. Louis Labor Council endorsing Lange.

“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,” stated Councilwoman Lisa Clancy, Chair of the St. Louis County Council. “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, he is the voice we need for working families.”

“I am honored to have the endorsement of Councilwoman Clancy,” stated Lange. “I look forward to working with her and the other members of the council of both parties. The St. Louis County Council should not be a place for partisan games and 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.”

Alex Lange is a lifetime resident of St. Louis County. Lange is a husband, a father of two with a third due in November, and a union representative for United Food and Commercial Workers Union Local 655. Alex Lange will face Venki Palamand and State Representative Bob Burns in the August 4th Democratic Primary. 

Alex Lange is officially endorsed by the St. Louis Labor Council!

I could not be happier to earn the endorsement of the hard-working men and women of the labor movement. The St. Louis Labor Council is made up of over 100 labor unions and represents thousands of area workers. This endorsement is a big step on our way to building a St. Louis County that works for us. When I entered this race, I knew it would be tough. I knew that I was a political newcomer, that I would have to work harder to earn the votes of the people of the sixth district over career politicians. Today we proved that we are on the path to victory in the Democratic Primary on August 4th.

“Alex knows organized labor. He knows what we fight for,” said St. Louis Labor Council President Pat White in a statement. “The sixth district is a strong union area. They deserve a councilman that will fight for them every day. Alex will bring that fight and a unique pro-union perspective to the St. Louis County Council. We are proud to endorse Alex Lange for Sixth District County Council.”   

Campaigning has been made tougher and we want to promote the endorsement on social media with some paid advertising. Could you chip in to our campaign today?
