“We need to restore ethical government to St. Louis County. As a community and business leader, I pledge myself to work morning, noon and night to restore integrity and effectiveness to STL County government and create a community that we can be proud of and a place that we can feel good about passing along to our children and grandchildren.”
- Mark Mantovani
Mark Mantovani was born and raised in Affton. He has been married to his wife Patty (a native of Rock Hill, Missouri) for 45 years and they are the parents of three grown children and grandparents of 11, all residents of the St. Louis Metropolitan area.
Mark graduated from St. Louis University High School before receiving a bachelor’s degree with Highest Honors from Quincy University, then his law degree from the University of Missouri at Columbia, and a Masters in Business Administration from the University of Pittsburgh-Katz Graduate School of Business. Mark was a Fellow in residence in Cambridge, Mass., at the Harvard University Advanced Leadership Initiative in 2016 and a Senior Fellow in 2017. He has lectured and taught college level courses in Business Law, the Legal Environment of Business, and Real Estate Finance, been an evaluator for applicants for St. Louis Arch Grants, and coached hundreds of St. Louis young people in soccer, basketball, and baseball.
Mark was formerly Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Ansira, a St. Louis based data and analytics focused diversified marketing services business, where he managed all company operations.
Under his leadership, the Company expanded from a small, family-owned, local, 50-person company to a highly regarded industry leader with 800 employees in locations including St. Louis, Dallas, Chicago, Los Angeles, Portland, Atlanta, Detroit, London, Honolulu and Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Ansira was ranked as one of the nation’s three largest privately owned digital marketing agencies.
In addition to his business activities, Mark has been actively engaged in civic and charitable activities. He formerly served two terms as Chairman of the Board of the Partnership for Downtown St. Louis, as well as on the Executive Committee of the Board of Directors for the St. Louis Zoo and as a Director of the St. Louis Sports Commission.
For too long, St. Louis County has been plagued by scandals and corruption. I will stop the pay-to-play, back room deals, that are currently ruining our county government and restore ethical leadership to the office of County Executive. We must stop the chaos in St. Louis County Government!
Under Sam Page’s leadership our police have become defunded and demoralized while violent crime has skyrocketed. Our families and children no longer feel safe in St. Louis County. I will reinvigorate our law enforcement agencies, improve county-city police cooperation, and make keeping our families and businesses safe my top priority.
Our economy has suffered under the Page administration and our families are hurting. Page closed small businesses while leaving big box stores open, and under the Page administration we have seen our taxes skyrocket harming our most vulnerable populations. I am a proven economic innovator who will help St. Louis County businesses bounce back stronger and more prosperous than ever before.
Because of Sam Page’s combative, passive-aggressive leadership style the St. Louis County Council has devolved into a quagmire of infighting and dysfunction. I will stop the silly political wars that have stalled our county government and get everyone working together again to solve the real problems our families are facing.

It is rare in life when one is afforded the opportunity of a do-over and even more so in politics. What if you were given an outlook of tomorrow and saw nothing but divided communities? What if you witnessed more rising c...
Together we can restore ethical, bi-partisan leadership to St. Louis County, but I can’t do it alone! Please consider joining our growing team of dedicated citizens working to move St. Louis County forward!
