Luke Davis, Board Member
My Family and I have called Fremont Hills home since 2009. What a beautiful place to live conveniently located to all area attractions. My wife Heather and I have three beautiful kids who are very active and keep us busy all the time! Heather and I have owned and operated two retail businesses here in the area and we both have a passion for retail.
Currently serving as Mayor, I’ve served 3 terms as a Ward 2 Council Member and President of the Board. Fremont Hills is a great place to live and play. The city council and all those involved with the city, work hard to keep Fremont Hills an attractive city that is both fiscally sound and appealing to those who live here and those that desire to live here. We are very proud to call Fremont Hills home!
Eric Claussen, Board Member
My wife Julie and I moved to southern Missouri in 2004 for the beauty, the people, and a great place to raise a family with Midwestern values. We have loved every minute of being here and even more since we were able to move to Fremont Hills. I remember when we first drove by the City, shortly after moving here, and thinking how blessed we would be to live in such an attractive, well-maintained, and convenient community. In 2010, our dreams became a reality, and we are now raising our two daughters here in Fremont Hills.
With a passion for public service, I am very proud to be a part of the Fremont Hills Planning and Zoning Commission. I bring experience of the public sector as a past employee of the Missouri Department of Transportation, and current serve as the City Traffic Engineer for the City of Springfield. I love to see the positive additions that the City has implemented, since we first moved here, and I am very excited for what the future holds for this great community nestled in the Ozarks.
