In his own words:

1. I was born and raised in North St. Louis County and received my undergraduate degree in Administration of Justice from the University of Missouri St. Louis in 1985.

I Moved to Brentwood in 1998 with my wife Sherry Hartnett who had lived in Brentwood since 1990. She moved here because of the School system. Sherry nor I went to Brentwood schools but all my sons Andy Hartnett (just bought his first Home in Brentwood this year) , Eric Nuernberger, Jake Nuernberger and Cory Nuernberger all graduated from the Brentwood school system.


3. For the past 12 years I have served as a board member on The City of Brentwood Planning and Zoning Commission 5 (I think) of those years as secretary.

4. I have been active in the St Mary Magdalen Athletic Association in Brentwood, volunteered to sit on their board as Secretary and coached Soccer for several teams.

5. I am past president of the St Jerome Athletic Association and sat on their board for 6 years

6. I have served as an officer of the St. Louis Apartment Association from 2004 to 2011

7. I work at Rise (formally Regional Housing and Community Development Alliance) a Non Profit that builds strong neighborhoods and affordable homes for lower income residents since April, 2011, as an Asset Manager. Since 1995 I have worked in the field real estate in the area of property management as a regional manager. This background in overseeing a variety of properties, from smaller tax credit and market rate properties to large multi-family projects in all areas of metro St Louis and Illinois give me the experience to manage the diverse and complex matters of Rise.

8. Was asked to sit on the housing subcommittee, ONESTL: MANY COMMUNITIES, ONE FUTURE, TO help create a plan was developed through a three-year collaborative process led by the East-West Gateway Council of Governments, and provides a regional plan for sustainable development that citizens, non-profit organizations, businesses, and local governments can use to make better use of resources and better meet the aspirations and needs of residents. As partners throughout the region use the plan, they will update and revise it based on what they have learned as they improve their communities. The planning effort was commissioned by the Department of Housing and Urban Development, Sustainable Communities Regional Planning Grant Program.

9. Soccer is my passion and at 52 I still play 2 days per week. I also play the guitar and love camping.
