Dave Hammond's 32 years in working for local government, including 20+ years in St. Charles County, gives him an advantage in understanding his constituents and their concerns, as well as County and regional issues.

After 16 years with the County, Dave retired in 2010. Two years after retiring, Dave ran for the County Council District 4 seat and won. "I enjoyed working in government and wanted to give back now that I have the time," said Dave about why he ran for office. "I enjoy helping people and thought my years of experience could be put to good use."
