Lifelong Missourian Kenneth Abram has announced his bid for State Representative in St. Louis County. The district includes the cities of Lemay, Affton, Bella Villa and Mehlville. Running as a Republican, he will appear on the primary ballot in August, unopposed. In November’s General Election, Abram will face off with Democrat incumbent, Rep. Bridget Walsh Moore.
“As a leader and Production Operations Manager for Boeing, I have built military aircraft for the United States Air Force, Navy and our allies,” said Abram. “My goal as state representative is to build a state government that is accountable to taxpayers not bureaucrats. As a conservative who’s not a career politician, I believe I’m right for this job representing St. Louis County.”
Abram is known for his work ethic and dedication as well as experience working with many local skilled trades. Ken has worked for Boeing for 38 years and now holds the office of Manufacturing Manager. Ken is active with his church where he serves on the executive board and helps with fundraising for the community.
“I love St. Louis County,” said Abram. “I’ve lived in this district for 38 years, and I couldn’t imagine raising my family anywhere else. Making this decision was not easy, but after talking with my family and some serious prayers, I’m confident that running for state representative is the best way I can make positive change for St. Louis County! I look forward to earning the support of voters this fall.”
Ken has outlined his platform with core conservative principles: pro-business, pro-labor, pro-life and pro-gun. Abram also backs the blue and opposes illegal immigration. On education, Abram believes parents are best fit for determining their child’s education path and he opposes Critical Race Theory being taught in our schools.
“I believe that the government has made it too hard for businesses to succeed. Most career politicians have tried to make the government bigger, but all it’s done is made business smaller and it has hurt our state. Meanwhile, we need to invest more in workforce development and in our schools, better prepare students to be successful members of society, and remove politics from the classroom. When I’m in the Missouri Capitol, I will cut taxes and unnecessary government red tape, fix our broken education system, and support our brave police officers.”
Ken and his wife, Maria, have enjoyed 38 wonderful years of marriage and are proud parents and grandparents.
Kenneth Abram has retained Axiom Strategies to serve as consultants for his campaign.
