Our community matters. Our jobs matter.

Our schools matter. And our safety matters.

It’s important to have someone representing

you in Jefferson City who knows what matters

to you. That’s why I am going door to door to

meet every voter in our House District, MO 65.

MO 65 begins at the confluence of the rivers in St Charles County, goes south through St Charles City bordered by Droste Road, 1 st Capitol Drive, and Highway 70. The cities of West Alton, Portage De Sioux, and a majority of St Charles are all within the District, as are the Orchard Farm and St Charles Schools.

This is a wonderful community with historic areas in St Charles and Portage De Sioux and up and coming areas around the New Town development.


Bill Otto is a retired air traffic controller with a strong record of public and community service.  Bill has been a Boy Scout leader, a Bible School teacher at Arlington Methodist Church, a youth coach at St. Lawrence Catholic Church and a house father in a boys home.  He has served as a City Council member in Bridgeton, then as a Representative to the Missouri State Legislature (District 70) for a diverse area that includes portions of St. Louis and St. Charles counties since elected in 2012.

Bill was born on New Year’s Day in 1956.  He has overcome many personal challenges, beginning at age 15 when his mother died and he was sent to a boys home.   Bill was provided food and shelter until he was 17, when state law forced him to leave. He was put out on the streets — homeless at 17.

Bill overcame these challenges with the help of teachers and mentors and went on to receive his GED, go to college and join the U.S. Navy.  Bill especially credits the help he received from inspiring Navy officers who taught him how to be successful.

In 1983, he received an honorable discharge from the United States Navy.

He and his wife Kathy have been married for over 20 years and raised three sons and three daughters in Bridgeton.

Bill is a huge St. Louis Cardinals fan.  His love of music can be seen through his vinyl record collection and the guitar that he occasionally will strum.
