Donald Calloway, Jr. (born September 18, 1979) is an American attorney and politician from St. Louis, Missouri. He was a member of the Missouri House of Representatives for the 71st District in St. Louis County.
Donald Calloway, Jr. was born in St. Louis, Missouri to Donald Calloway, Sr. and Jonell Calloway. In 2002, he graduated from Alabama A&M, majoring in Political Science and English. There, he was a brother in the local chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi, and was elected Student Body President. He then entered law school at Boston University, graduating in 2005. A practicing attorney, he currently lives in Bel-Nor, Missouri with his wife, Sarah Jane Forman, a law professor at the School of Law at Washington University in St. Louis, and his son Donald “Cal” Calloway III.
On August 5, 2008, Calloway won the Democratic primary for the 71st District seat in the Missouri House of Representatives. Calloway won 52% of the vote in a three-way race against Vernon Harlan, and Rogerick Wilson. Since no Republican candidate filed for the office, he was elected unopposed on November 4, 2008. He took office in January 2009.
Calloway, as a member of the Missouri House of Representatives, was a member of the Emerging Issues in Animal Agriculture Committee, General Laws Committee, Rules Committee and Tax Policy Committee.
In October 2009, the Northeast Ambulance and Fire Protection District Board, which had been plagued with charges of corruption, bribery and cronyism, came under direct fire as the board approved an ill-merited severance packaged for board members Robert Edwards and Joe Washington totaling over $750,000. Representative Calloway personally challenged the legitimacy of the payoff, and filed a successful lawsuit to have the corresponding bank accounts frozen.
In February 2010, Calloway sponsored a bill to limit the long-term effects of concussions on high-school football athletes. The bill required that student athletes who suffered a concussion get written permission from a doctor or licensed medical official, certifying the absence of long-term brain damage and the ability to continue playing safely, before they would be allowed to participate in games or practice.
Calloway ran unsuccessfully in the Democratic primary for State Senator from the 14th district finishing third behind Maria Chappelle-Nadal (D-72) and Theodore "Ted" Hoskins (D-80), with about 500 votes separating the top 3 candidates.
