Meet Congressman Blain Luetkemeyer....
Tell us about yourself...
I am proudly from St. Elizabeth where I raised my three children and operate a 160-acre farm. I went to school at Lincoln University and prior to becoming a United States Representative, I raised livestock, was a small businessman, and worked in the banking and insurance fields.
Tell us about your organization...
I represent our state’s 3rd District in Congress, which includes more than 762,000 constituents residing in 13 counties in eastern and central Missouri.
What is the mission/vision of your organization?
The mission of this office is to fairly represent the people of our district by listening to and addressing their concerns, while also acting as an advocate for all Missourians and looking out for the best interests of the American people.
What do you do to serve your clients best?
My offices are happy to help constituents with federal agencies, federal grants, service academy nominations, and internships. I have three district offices, Wentzville, Washington, and Jefferson City, and my staff and I regularly meet with individuals and organizations in the local area. Hearing from you helps me do my job as a representative better.
What are you most looking forward to in the next 5 years for the company?
I am very excited about the future of America. The House of Representatives is hard at work to repeal Dodd-Frank and put consumers back in charge of their finances. In addition, we are working on a replacement to Obamacare and working on tax reform so most Americans will soon be able to file their taxes on a piece of paper the size of a notecard. Those are the big ticket items the House has started to work on this term. I’m also focused on our area’s water infrastructure: the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers give our area a big advantage when it comes to moving goods to market, and we’ve got ensure that these waterways are maintained for commerce and navigation.
Why would you recommend the O’Fallon Chamber?
I want to thank the O’Fallon Chamber of Commerce for all of the hard work that it does in St. Charles County. The Chamber is incredibly active in the area and by having regular meetings and constant communication, you are able to bring your ideas from the local business community to Washington so we can work on your behalf.
