Exec Building

Jefferson County Executive Dennis Gannon, St. Charles County Executive Steve Ehlmann, and Franklin County Presiding Commissioner Tim Brinker today applaud Governor Parson for appointing Gabriel Gore as the new St. Louis Circuit Attorney and endorsed efforts to secure state funding for the St. Louis region’s prosecutors to assist Circuit Attorney Gabe Gore in reducing crime and improving public safety in St. Louis.

Early today, Caleb Rowden, Pro Tem of the Senate, and Dean Plocher, Speaker of the House, announced that a top priority for the legislature would be to secure supplemental appropriations to reimburse the region’s prosecutors and the Attorney General in their efforts to assist the new Circuit Attorney's transition.

“This is exactly the kind of leadership from Jefferson City we need right now during this critical time our region is facing,” said Jefferson County Executive Dennis Gannon.

“I applaud and am thankful for the swift appointment by Governor Mike Parson, and leadership by Senate Pro Tem Caleb Rowden and Speaker Dean Plocher,” said St. Charles County Executive Steve Ehlmann. “Gabriel Gore is extremely qualified and I am sure is the person to get the job done.”

“The appointment of Mr. Gore today by Governor Parson is an absolute step in the right direction for our entire region, and purely demonstrates what cooperative efforts can achieve when pursuing what is right,” said Franklin County Commissioner Tim Brinker.
