ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) - State Rep. Rick Stream of Kirkwood is faced Green Park Alderman Tony Pousosa to be the Republican Candidate for St. Louis County Executive. Both candidates hit the streets Tuesday to drum up more support for their ticket. But, Rick Stream came out ahead in the end.

Missouri State Representative Rick Stream is completing his second term in the House of Representatives where he has managed the budget committee. He spent 30 years in budget and project management for the U.S. Department of Defense based in St. Louis. He also served on the Kirkwood School Board for 12 years.

Stream was urged to run by GOP leaders.  He says he wants to bring quality people to county government and “restore the pride and professionalism in county leadership.”  He says one of his first actions would be to conduct a performance review of every county department.

Stream ran against South County resident Tony Pousosa.  He is an alderman in the small town of Green Park and a member of the community’s planning and zoning commission. The 43-year old is also surgical nurse at Barnes Hospital.
