Senator William C. (Bill) Eigel, was sworn into office on Jan 4, 2017, to serve the residents of Missouri‘s 23rd Senatorial District in St. Charles County.
Senator Eigel is a United States Air Force military veteran of eight years and has owned a small business in St. Charles County for more than 10 years.
Senator Eigel, who held the rank of Captain while serving in the Air Force, completed assignments in Louisiana, Arizona, and most recently at Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri.
