Kristopher J Ambuehl, former city administrator
As the former St. Joseph city administrator, I find myself in a rare position to be able to endorse a candidate in the St. Joseph mayor’s race. I have had the privilege to work with multiple mayors during my career in local government, and I have to say that it was an absolute honor and pleasure to work for St. Joseph Mayor Rick Schultz. He truly has his finger on the pulse of what St. Joseph is. His ability to keep conversations going and keep city-council members engaged in conversation regardless of their views is a rare and much-needed skill in the city. Schultz is fully invested in the well-being and future of the community. I think the City of St. Joseph would be well-served to have Mayor Rick Schultz serve another term.
