St. Louis County Executive Sam Page announced today that Cora Faith Walker will join his administration as Director of Policy.
“Cora’s policy record is marked by collaboration and building a consensus with diverse colleagues,” County Executive Page said. “She will play a big role as we address the many challenges our region faces like crime and public safety, restoring trust in County government, and improving the business climate.”
Walker, who resigned from her position as State Representative today, said joining the Page administration is an opportunity to broaden her focus.
“Representing the people of St. Louis County in Jefferson City has been rewarding and I’m grateful that residents trusted me to serve them,” Walker said. “But local government has so much more potential to improve the lives of our residents. Sam Page is tackling our region’s biggest problems, and I’m excited to join his administration.”
Prior to serving in the legislature, Walker’s professional experience includes working as a faculty member at St. Louis University School of Law and in policy at the Missouri Foundation for Health.
