My name is Barbara West and I have lived in the City of Bellefontaine Neighbors since 1998. I was educated in the St. Louis Public School System. I have worked at the Urban League, West St. Louis Community Center (Yalem), Murphy Blair Gateway Center, and the State of Missouri. I was also instrumental in organizing State Workers to CWA local 6383, where I served as a Shop Steward, Executive VP, and later becoming President. I want to thank the residents of Ward 1 for putting their confidence in me by electing me to this position. It is my desire to make Bellefontaine Neighbors a safer and more beautiful place to live and raise a family. I commit myself to working with our police department, fire district, school district, Board, and other organizations to obtain my goals. Please feel free to email or call me.
