Thank you for visiting the homepage of Ladies for Lamping, a network of politically interested and informed women. The network is my contribution toward supporting my husband, Senator John Lamping, as he works to serve us all in the Missouri Legislature. I am very thrilled to be a part of this enthusiastic group of women and John and I are grateful for the overwhelming support we’ve received. We look forward to the many great friends and relationships we will continue to build through this very important network.

About Caryn Lamping
Growing up as the third oldest of eight children in a middle class family in Connecticut, my parents emphasized the importance of education and saving. “Resourceful” was one of my father’s favorite words. Each of us was instilled with the notion that employment and education were a privilege and an opportunity for personal success. As evidence of this, the O’Hara family has the legacy of being the only family in the history of the University of Connecticut to graduate all eight children! Although I earned my degree as an Honors Scholar in French, I quickly chose to pursue a graduate education. It was shortly after graduating from Cornell University with an MBA in Finance that I met John. After six weeks of dating, we were engaged and have been happily married for 24 years.
Initially, John and I focused on our careers. However, the stresses of living in a big city with a long commute made it obvious that we wanted a smaller community in which to work and raise our family. Returning to St. Louis in 1995 was the best decision we could have made. I love St. Louis and happily choose to stay home to raise our children. During the last 15 years, John has been devoted to his family and to the community, and his tremendous experience in public service and philanthropic organizations has provided him with a unique perspective about the problems we face in Missouri. After seeing failed government policies negatively affect the philanthropic organizations that he cares so deeply for, John was inspired to run for public office.
During his first year in Jefferson City John proved his ability to effectively make a difference. He was successful in passing legislation important to our state and was named the 2011 Rookie of the Year by the St. Louis Business Journal. It’s been fun to watch him succeed in this arena and to support him as he makes great strides for the citizens of the 24th District. I hope you will join us in supporting John as he works to serve us all.
