In all, I’ve had over 22 years of experience in I.T., ranging from network design, implementation, administration, and project/vendor management.I’ve spent years as a distance runner, an amateur astronomer, and member of a local home brew club.

Alisa Lowry, Alderman Ward 3
Alisa Lowry, Alderman, Ward 3 currently serves as the Director of Autism Services at the Arc of the Ozarks in Springfield, Missouri. Alisa and her husband have been residents of the City of Fremont Hills for 12 years.
This is my 2nd term serving as an Alderman for the City. I was elected to my first term in April of 2010 where I served for 2 years. I also served on the Board for Fremont Hills Country Club from August 2012 – December 2012.
I became involved with our city due to the annexation issue that was an issue for the City in 2009. I wasn’t very involved until that issue, when someone stated that “they didn’t know who I was, and if I was so passionate about the issue, how was it that they never saw me at any of the meetings before then?” Hmm… Be careful what you wish for, right?
So, I am using my talent, knowledge and experience in Non-Profit Administration along with an eagerness to learn to the City.
What is the attraction to being an alderman? The City of Fremont Hills – is an amazing place to live – yes, It IS a CITY (4th class) NOT a SUBDIVISION! –We ARE NOT an HOA. We are an established city with a voice in Christian County. It is a mature city with beautiful trees, well maintained homes and streets. The citizens of Fremont Hills are great. They are passionate, family- focused, hard-working people that enjoy their leisure time. They take pride in their community, are involved, looking out for each other and their neighbors. Many enjoy being members of the Fremont Hills Country Club that is located within the boundaries of the City. The club offers a challenging 18-hole golf course, a state of the art swimming pool and a nice bar and grill. Whether it is being able to drive their golf-carts to the course, drop kids off at the pool, grab a meal with friends, hand out cases of candy at Halloween to loads of trick-or-treaters every year, or sell items at the annual garage sale every April, it is what defines living in the City of Fremont Hills. I am thankful for those that have served before me as our representatives. I have learned a great deal from my time as an alderman and am proud of the accomplishments and financially sound decisions we have made for the City. I have a lot of respect for the amazing individuals that I am fortunate to serve with while on the Board of Alderman.
