Florissant Councilman Wins Democratic State House Seat Bid

Keith English faces Republican Rekha Sharma in the November general election.

English defeated the incumbent 2,226 to 1,532. Candidate Todd Hoffman received 10 percent of the vote.

“I want to take this leadership to the state level, where I think I can make an impact to North County,” English said in an earlier interview with Florissant Patch. “I think that North County has been looked over for many years for state money.”

Rep. Atkins represented the 75th District until the latest redistricting due to 2010 census.

English will face Republican candidate Rekha Sharma in the Nov. 6 general election.

We'll have further comments from the winners last night later on Patch.

Congrats Keith. My dad's Rep has been Atkins for far too long. It would be nice to have someone who will actually listen to constituents in that office.
