Shamed Dogan announced today that he will run for State Representative for Missouri’s 88th District and has opened up a fundraising committee, Citizens for Dogan. “I am running to help return the Republican Party to its small government conservative roots,” Dogan said. “My experience working for Senator Jim Talent taught me how be an effective advocate for curbing spending, protecting life at all stages, promoting economic growth, and controlling illegal immigration. I believe I am the best person to represent the values of the 88th District and I would be honored to serve as State Representative.”

Dogan was born and raised in North St. Louis County and graduated from Yale University in 2000. He has long been an advocate of conservative values and political causes. After college, he worked for Black America’s Political Action Committee, where he helped select conservative candidates to receive PAC contributions. From 2001-2002, he worked for the National Republican Senatorial Committee, conducting opposition research that helped Republicans take back the majority in the U.S. Senate. After that campaign, he was offered a position on Senator Talent’s staff, where he served for three years as a legislative assistant. He helped to write federal “Pass with Care” legislation and advised the Senator on transportation, immigration, energy and other issues.

In 2006, he served as Deputy Coalitions Director for the Missouri Republican Party, where he organized the Party’s statewide African-American, Hispanic and Small Business coalitions.

Dogan currently serves as Higher Education Coordinator for the Regional Business Council, a consortium of Presidents and CEOs of 100 of the St. Louis region’s largest mid-cap companies. He manages a mentoring program for more than 80 students at 13 regional universities. He lives in Ballwin with his wife, Sara, and is a member of the Young Republicans, the Urban League Young Professionals, and the West County Jaycees.
