Vernon Bauer

Mayor of St. Paul, MO

I have had the privilege of being your a Mayor a second time since 2011. I served prior from 1991 to 1999 before taking some time away for family.

For those newer to the City, I was born and raised here and have lived here all but ten years of my life. I have a beautiful, supportive wife and two grown children who have given me four grandchildren. My wife Julie is retired after serving 27 years in the Air Force and another 14 years with the State of Missouri. My kids are both educators. My grand-kids make me smile all the time!

I am thankful for your support and look forward to serving you both now and in the future.
