Positive Leadership Looking Forward

  • Pat opposes any residential rezoning except to eliminate the non-urban classification and reclassify City Parks to the Parks and Open Spaces classification.
  • Pat seeks a Town Hall meeting for in depth discussions about “cluster homes”
    or “luxury villas” type of developments and whether they should be removed from our current zoning laws.
  • Pat proposed the most restrictive floodplain development standards in the St Louis area and recently Sunset Hills hosted the U.S. Corps of Engineers presentation on floodplain and flooding management.
  • Sunset Hills is the most transparent city in the St Louis area with our own transparency ordinance. We put many of our documents on our website or provide them to the public upon request.
  • Pat will create a special committee to study and present ideas on making Sunset Hills more bicycle friendly.
  • Pat will continue bringing residential friendly businesses and keep them strictly in already commercially zoned areas.
  • Pat will continue bringing events and programs to our city for the enjoyment of our residents.

Elected Alderman for Ward 4 four times; elected Mayor twice.  I have served on numerous city committees since 1987. I have lived in Sunset Hills for more than forty years. I raised four children that attended and graduated from Lindbergh schools, and I received the Lindbergh Leader award. I know Sunset Hills. I know that this is a special community, and I am thankful that I have been part of its development. I know personally hundreds of the wonderful residents in this community. I do not want to see our city go back to inexperienced, unvetted, and divisive leadership. Talk is cheap. It’s easy to run for elected office and find fault and be critical about matters that you do not understand fully; or to make unsubstantiated claims or to make promises that are unrealistic or unnecessary. A track record and results speak loudly. 

Review my credentials and accomplishments. Speak to people who know me. Most of the current Board of Alderman, and former Alderman and Mayors support me. Please vote for me on June 2nd, 2020 to help us preserve and move forward our great and special city. Thank you. mayorpatfribis@gmail.com 



  • I fought to keep the Court Drive residential property from becoming commercial
  • I listened to residents unhappy with the crime and police activity occurring frequently at the Econo Lodge, and I led the Board of Alderman to revoke the Econo Lodge business license, resulting in the sale, and tear down
    of the buildings with new development underway with a new improved intersection at East Watson and Lindbergh, and a developer paid for new unique city sculpture at the corner.
  • Under my leadership, the Police Department has instituted programs, including: Coffee with a Cop, Police-kid Fishing Derby, and Baseball Cards for Kids.
  • I implemented a donation by the Stieren family for a new Tugboat playground, with a liberty bell, and pavilion.
  • I worked closely with the Sunset Hills Historical Society and the Route 66 Association of Missouri to bring back to our city the original Park Plaza Hotel neon sign, owing to the generous contribution by Mr. Al Moore of Sunset Hills that made it possible, that will bring many tourists to our city.
  • I formed the Art Committee bringing art sculptures and other art to our city. Our city’s hosting of a Maker’s Mart through the Art Committee has been a huge success.
  • I created the Sunset Hills Annual Route 66 Bike Cruise.
  • I pressed for and had adopted the Sidewalk Connectivity initiative by adding an annual allocation of money
    from the budget to a sidewalk fund. New developments must also contribute to the fund or add sidewalks. We now have sidewalks on East Watson, part of West Watson, and soon on West Watson between Gravois and Weber Hill Rd, and on Lindbergh.
  • I led the city to obtain grants to install restrooms in three area parks.
  • I led the city through multiple city floods and obtained SEMA And FEMA grants for recovery.
  • I was instrumental as chairwoman of the finance committee to create a city administrator position.
    I interviewed and recommended the hiring of the first city administrator who has achieved the goals
    of running the city more efficiently with substantial economic savings.
  • Under my leadership, more than $100 million in new development has come to Sunset Hills for the
    benefit of the city.
  • I advocated for and supported many other issues and programs for the city and community including:
    Opposing the “Better Together” movement.
    Supporting Literacy for Lindbergh.
    The city worked with MODOT for the design and planning of the new pedestrian and bike trail through
    Sunset Hills and over the I-44 bridge.
  • I have been involved in and helped facilitate and support many projects with the Conservation Foundation for Sunset Hills (such as Kitun Park, The Nancy Eschbach Forest River Trail Park, Laumeier Sculpture Park, and other projects).
  • I am actively engaged in the Sunset Hills Historical Society, Rainbows for Kids, and many of the activities and events held by the city and other charities.
