Susan Hart

Vice President – Reinhardt Construction, LLC

REDI Immediate Past Chair

"I have had the privilege of working with Connie for many years in the Central Missouri construction industry.  From my personal experiences working with her, I know she will be a trusted, intelligent and consistent leader in the role as Presiding Commissioner of Boone County.  She loves our community and has the unique skills to serve this County in a leadership role.  She is  known to both owners, contractors and employees as a person of integrity.  She has worked on public construction projects and understands the rules, regulations and transparency needed in the governmental arena.  She knows and can make decisions about infrastructure because she has been a part of building infrastructure projects in the past.  


Most importantly Connie loves this community and will serve the constituents of Boone County so future generations of our families will thrive and want to stay here to live, play and work.  Our county has many challenges ahead and I am confident Connie Leipard will be a strong leader who will listen to all Boone Countians and successfully work to arrive at solutions to  those challenges."


Kelly Wallis

Former Director of Boone County Community Services Department

“Connie began her service on the Boone County Children's Services Board when I served as the Director of Boone County Community Services Department. Connie demonstrated a passionate commitment to improve the lives of children, youth and families in Boone County while balancing sound fiscal decisions for taxpayers. 

I believe Connie will work diligently as presiding commissioner, dedicating herself to the service of all citizens in Boone County."

"As a former Boone County Commissioner, I am keenly aware of the importance of a strong community service and business background in a Commission candidate. Connie is the perfect example of longstanding business experience.  She and her husband, Mike, have owned Quality Drywall company since its inception in 1978. That background brings years of plan review, construction estimating, process, coordination, and management expertise to the Commission. This is especially valuable when it comes to numerous construction and remodeling projects the commission must review and approve annually.

Her community service background is extensive and reaches far beyond Boone County to serving on national boards as well as years of service to Columbia & Boone County.


I’m honored to support such an outstanding candidate for Presiding Commissioner."

The Boone County Cattlemen are please to endorse Connie Leipard for Presiding Commissioner.  Based on her years of success in the construction industry, her commitment to community involvement, and her leadership experience at the local, regional, and national level, we are confident that she will prove to be a capable leader for Boone County.

I have known Connie Leipard for more than forty years.  She is smart and industrious, yet represents values that I see as being important, such as honesty and integrity.  She understands the stresses of running a business and meeting payroll.  She knows that the people that work for us are not just employees, but are families that count on us.  Connie and her husband, Mike, have been strong  competitors of my business for over forty years, and good ones.  Her campaign sign is in our yard because I whole heartedly endorse her.
