Lt. Gov. Kinder to Endorse, Hold Fundraiser for Dogan

October 25th, 2007 by mopns · No Comments

Lieutenant Governor Peter Kinder announced today that he is endorsing former Talent staffer Shamed Dogan for State Representative in Missouri’s 88th District.

“Shamed Dogan has all of the qualities that we want to see in our public servants: experience, energy, and most importantly, a commitment to Missouri values,” said Kinder. “From the first time that I met Shamed, I was impressed with his grasp of the issues and his dedication to conservative principles. He is an exceptional candidate and exactly the kind of leader that our party needs.”

Kinder will also headline a fundraiser for Dogan Nov. 10 at the Drury Plaza Hotel in Chesterfield. The host committee for the event includes former Sen. Jim Talent, State Reps. Jane Cunningham (R-Chesterfield) and Kenny Jones (R-California), Tim Drury of Drury Development, and Ballwin Aldermen James Robinson, Jane Suozzi and Jimmy Terbrock.

Dogan was born and raised in St. Louis. He graduated from Yale University in 2000 and served as a legislative assistant for Senator Jim Talent from 2003 to 2006. In those years, he helped write federal “Pass with Care” legislation and advised the senator on a range of issues including transportation, energy, and immigration.

Dogan was recently selected as the St. Louis Young Republicans’ Man of the Year as well as one of the St. Louis Business Journal’s 30 Under 30. He works for the Regional Business Council and is a member of the St. Louis Area Young Republicans, the West County Jaycees, and the Urban League Young Professionals. He lives in Ballwin with his wife, Sara.
