Chrissy Sommer (born October 15, 1965) is a Republican member of the Missouri House of Representatives. Sommer represents the 106th (formally the 15th District) District which encompasses portions of St. Charles County, Missouri. She was first elected to the Missouri House in a special election on November 8, 2011 to fill the vacancy left by the resignation of Sally Faith.[1][2]

Early life, education and career

Chrissy Sommer was born in Kirkwood, Missouri. After graduation from Lindbergh High School in 1984 Sommer earned an associate degree in Business Administration from St. Louis Community College.[3] She then furthered her education at the University of Missouri - St. Louis, receiving a bachelor's degree in Business Administration and Business Marketing in 1989.[2] Prior to entering politics Sommer worked for her family business, Sunset Maintenance Company. She now helps run her husband's CPA firm, Sommer & Associates CPAs LLC and manage a commercial multi-tenant building. She and husband Michael Sommer are the parents of two children.


In April 2011 Sally Faith, the sitting 15th District Representative, won election as mayor of St. Charles, Missouri and resigned from her House seat. Missouri Governor Jay Nixon then called for a special election to fill the remainder of Faiths' term.[4] Chrissy Sommer had been previously involved in local Republican politics, serving in the St. Charles County Republican Central Committee. She was selected by Committee members of the 15th District from three potential Republican candidates to face Democrat Paul Woody and Libertarian Bill Slantz.[5]

In a very close election held on November 8, 2011, Sommer edged Woody by only 38 votes.[6] Due to the small margin, Woody asked for a recount and Sommer was declared the winner in a recount conducted on December 14, 2011. The Missouri Secretary of State's office certified that the recount gave Sommer an additional two votes over Democrat Paul Woody for a total of forty votes difference. After the 2010 U.S. Census, all of Missouri's House and Senate districts were redrawn. Effective January 2013 Sommer's home of record will be in the 106th district, which she again ran for and won in the 2014 midterm.[7]
