Mayor: The Honorable Sean M. Fitzgerald
Moved to Warson Woods: Over 22 years ago!
What I love about Warson Woods: This is a community of neighbors who care about you and are here for you. It is a happy place filled with children and adults of all ages who all greet one another with a friendly smile and a friendly wave – it is HOME.
About me: I grew up in Georgia in a small close community that I always sought to replicate wherever I moved in my career. My company gave me the opportunity to move to headquarters here in St Louis and was referred to Warson Woods by a colleague. I have 3 sons who have all loved calling Warson Woods home. We have considered moving several times, but the draw of this community is so strong that we could never decide to make that move. We are all so happy that we have remained for all these years.
Ward 1 Alderwoman: Dawn Bickford
Moved to Warson Woods: Over 35 years ago!
What I love about Warson Woods: The small size, the homes and easy access to the entire St. Louis area.
About me: I grew up in Ballwin and we regularly came in to shop at the Warson Woods shopping center. I have worked in the accounting/finance field my entire career, first at McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) then SBC (now ATT). One of my favorite things is getting out to explore our beautiful state. My newest roommate is a little black cat that I adopted from the Humane Society.

What I love about Warson Woods: I love that I can send my kids out the door in the morning and they can always find things to do and friends to play with. Nothing makes me happier than a gaggle of feral kids running around.
About me: I first knew I was destined for political greatness in 1997, when I was elected as a student Senator in college. After a brief hiatus to build a career, get married and have three daughters, I am finally fulfilling my life’s destiny as Alderwoman, reminding residents to drive the speed limit and pick up their dog poop.
Ward 2 Alderman: George P. (G.P.) Dorris, IV
Moved to Warson Woods: 2011
What I love about Warson Woods: The ‘neighborhoody’ feel about it.
About me: My wife, Laura, and our two sons live on Edlin at Bennett. I am a Manufacturer’s Representative for several companies mostly in the mechanical power transmission and industrial automation industries with a warehouse in N. St. Louis. In my free time, I’d prefer to be outside camping, trout fishing, hunting, or waiting for whatever happens to be in my smoker! I was on the WWSC Board as Facilities Manager for four years and as President for the four years following that. After a year off, it looks as if I will be leading the team again for the 2021 season, too. During nicer weather, we have a collection of antique, St. Louis-built, automobiles that we drive around and display at car shows around the city.
Ward 2 Alderwoman: Lucy Pfyl

What I love about Warson Woods: The sense of community.
About me: Though raised in Chesterfield, I spent countless hours with family in friends in Warson Woods. That is how I discovered what a great community Warson Woods was then and is now. After graduating from college I traveled, worked in sales, and eventually went back to school to become a nurse. We moved to Warson Woods to raise our family in the township I so loved as a child. I hope and plan to keep Warson Woods as wonderful as I remember and safe for all.
Ward 3 Alderwoman: Laura Lee
Moved to Warson Woods: 2005
What I love about Warson Woods: I love our very friendly people and that we support and look out for each other. I love that we all take pride in our homes and neighborhood. I love our “old school” pool, fall festival, and our beautiful parks. This is a beautiful town. And I love that we now have summer concerts in the park.
About me: I got to know Warson Woods at age 16 when I was a lifeguard at Warson Woods pool. I went to University of Dayton and then worked for a few years as a news anchor. I lived in San Diego and Duluth, Minnesota while working for Anheuser-Busch as a District Manager before moving to Chicago. I came back to St. Louis to get my M.B.A. at Washington University and met my husband John. After working in L.A. for Toyota and having two kids, I sold (begged) him on the idea of living affordably in St. Louis. We landed in Warson Woods and I work at Nestle Purina. My kids, Lexie and Ethan, graduated from Ste. Gen and I feel blessed to have raised them in this idyllic town that visitors find so charming. I am honored to serve this community and will do my best to serve this city, listen to the needs of our citizens, and do what is best to keep Warson Woods the area that everyone wants to live in.

What I love about Warson Woods: I love my neighborhood and neighbors, and I find WW especially cool because there are folks of all ages here. To me, that mix helps build a community.
About me: I’ve always been a reader, I’m a news junkie and I hope someday to get back to knitting. Over the years, I have been something of an amateur dog trainer. I love having animals around me, and because I have moved a lot, I’ve learned dogs are an instant introduction to people in the neighborhood. I love it when local children come up to ask if they can pet the dogs.
Ward 4 Alderman: Rob Hurtt
Moved to Warson Woods: 2014
What I love about Warson Woods: We are a very social and family-friendly community. You see it at our Fourth of July bike parades, summer days at WW Swim Club, the Fall Festival, and a host of other events — big and small, planned and spontaneous. Our neighborhood really emphasizes the “neighbor” part.
About me: I’m a life-long St. Louisan – a DeSmet, Mizzou, and SLU Law grad who works as a litigation attorney at Husch Blackwell in Clayton. Outside work/school, my family (wife Danielle and daughters Vivienne and Allison) enjoys the outdoors, and we are active parishioners at Ste Gen.

About me: My wife Becky and my daughter Maggie moved to Warson Woods in 2009. We have since added to our family with James and Henry. I graduated from CBC and Saint Louis University. I have been in the commercial real estate business for over 20 years.
