Today, Governor Parson appointed Robert Cornejo to the Labor and Industrial Relations Commission and additionally designated him Chair of the Commission. Prior to his appointment, Cornejo served as a member of the Missouri House, representing St. Charles and Lincoln Counties (District 64). He was elected to his first two-year term as a State Representative in November 2012.
“Having served as Chair of more than one House committee, including General Laws, Robert brings the experience necessary to his new role as Chairman of the Labor and Industrial Relations Commission,” said Gov. Parson. “His effectiveness in handling multiple projects ranging from constituent concerns to passing legislation at such a high level of quality gives him the qualifications needed to oversee this commission.”
A 2001 graduate of Hazelwood Central, Cornejo graduated from Washington University in St. Louis with a degree in Political Science with a second major in International Business. In 2008, Cornejo earned his J.D. from University of Missouri-School of Law.
Born in St. Louis County, Cornejo currently lives in St. Peters with his wife. They have a son and two daughters.
