Ben Keathley

Councilmember Ward II

Ben was sworn in as Councilmember on April 19, 2017, to represent Ward 2.

Having lived in Chesterfield for 23 years, I have grown up along side our wonderful city.  My wife, Jenny, and I live in the Shenandoah subdivision with our two dogs,  Casey and Rookie.  Jenny is an OR Nurse at  Barnes Jewish Hospital in St. Louis and has  worked for BJC for almost 5 years since  graduating from Maryville University.  I am  an Attorney, providing legal counsel to  small businesses and startups from all over  the area.  In 2014 I began my own practice  right here in Chesterfield. 

Chesterfield has been my home for a long time.  I attended Wild Horse and Chesterfield Elementary before graduating from Marquette High School.  At 12 years old I had my first job as an umpire at the Chesterfield Valley ball fields.  Throughout high school, I worked for a locally owned retail store at Chesterfield Mall, and I represented the Chesterfield Legion Post in Baseball.  

​The people of Chesterfield value families, take pride in their community, and believe in prioritizing residents.  These qualities are why Jenny and I have chosen to stay here, and why I started my law practice here.  Chesterfield is a great place to live, and my passion for our community has led me to so many great opportunities.  Since 2010, I have served on the Chesterfield Citizens for the Environment Committee, organizing many of the Earth Days and recycling events around our City.  

​Jenny and I love spending our free time around the City.  Whether walking with our dogs through the neighborhood, biking and jogging along the trails, or attending concerts in the Park, we have found that Chesterfield has so much to offer.  We want to ensure that Chesterfield remains a wonderful place to raise our future family.
