Alex Lange Declares Candidacy for Councilman for the Sixth District of St. Louis County
St. Louis, MO – St. Louis County native Alex Lange is a husband, a father of two young children, and a union representative for United Food and Commercial Workers Union Local 655. Lange has long fought for workers’ rights on the job and looks forward to using his experience and knowledge to advocate for all working families of the sixth district.
“I am running to bring a new voice to the St. Louis County Council. From Washington D.C., to Jefferson City, to Clayton, the voices of working people are being ignored by career politicians, insiders, and lobbyists. St. Louis County’s reputation has been tainted by scandal, and we are long overdue for a fresh start,” stated Lange.
As councilman, Alex will focus on building a county that is thriving and full of promise. He will work to maintain our schools at the highest levels to serve working families, and we deserve to have safe roadways and well-maintained bridges. Alex’s union job has taught him the importance of working families and that they deserve honest wages and benefits.
“The sixth district is a building block of our county. If elected, I will ensure that residents are seeing their tax dollars work for them and that our district isn’t subsidizing other parts of the county. It is important that we support our police officers and firefighters and ensure they have the proper tools to fight crime and keep our communities safe.” expressed Lange. “I am not a career politician, I’m a dad, a husband and a member of the community that we all love. It is time for a new voice, a new perspective, and a new era of leadership in St. Louis County.”
Alex Lange is a 33-year resident of St. Louis County. He is a graduate of Parkway South High School and the University of Missouri-St. Louis.
