Mary Monachella

Councilmember Ward I

I was appointed by the City Council on June 17, 2019 to fill the unexpired term of former Ward I Councilmember Barry Flachsbart.

My husband, Terry, and I have been home owners in Chesterfield for over 32 years, first in Westbury Manor and now in the Ladue Woods/South Trails subdivision in the Village of Green Trails. Our daughter owns a home in Ward III.

My recent community contributions include:

 - Chesterfield Parks, Recreation and Arts Citizens Advisory Committee 2016-2019
 - Chesterfield Planning Commission 2017-2019
 - Ladue Woods/South Trails Subdivision Trustee 2009-201
 - Village of Green Trails Association president since 2017

I have a BA in Mathematics from Fontbonne College (with 33 credit hours in business courses), and an MA in Mathematics from the University of Missouri St. Louis. My career as a mathematics faculty member at St. Louis Community College at Meramec spanned more than 30 years. I rose to the rank of full professor, served as Mathematics Department chair and also served on several department, campus and college-wide committees including Meramec Governance Council.

Before his retirement, Terry was a field engineer and operations manager at NCR Corporation. He currently has over 4500 hours volunteering with our local USO.

My family and I love living in Chesterfield and we want the best for our City and all our residents. Local government should work for everyone and decisions should not be partisan.  Serving on the Planning Commission and the Parks, Recreation and Arts Citizens Advisory Committee taught me a lot about Chesterfield. A mathematics background helps me view issues logically and see the bigger picture. So my past experience and education along with a willingness to listen will be what I call upon in my role as Councilmember Ward I.
