Quick Bio

I am running for State Representative because it is time to take government out of the hands of special interest and put it back into the hands of ordinary people. I am running to give ordinary people a voice in their government. If you share my vision, I urge you to connect with me and help make it happen! Together, we can make a meaningful difference--for our families, our communities and our state.

My Positions

STRONGLY SUPPORT
S+

Organized Labor Unions

“What lawmakers call Payroll Protection has nothing to do with protecting your pay. What it does do is introduce so called “Right to Work” laws in Missouri. These laws are passed for special interest to bring down wages in the state! Does that sound like payroll protection? NO!”

STRONGLY SUPPORT

Religion & State Separation

“The Religious Liberty is nothing more than pitting one group of people against another group. Is it really Liberty if you have to steal that Liberty away from another group? This bill would actually make it legal for one group of people to discriminate against another group of people. Does that sound like Liberty? NO!”

SUPPORT

Jobs and the Jobless

“I want to be your voice and introduce bills in Jefferson City that HELP people. Bills that help people to earn a living wage through a higher minimum wage. Bills that provide for our families, like paid family leave. ”

Minimum Wage

“I want to introduce and support bills that help people to earn a living wage through a higher minimum wage. ”

STRONGLY SUPPORT

Civil Liberties and Civil Rights

“I want to help to make it easier for our citizens to vote, NOT harder like HJR53 does. HJR53 is the Republican pushed voter photo ID law. Our Secretary of State has estimated that this bill alone will disenfranchise 220,000 of Missouri’s registered voters! The estimated cost of this completely unnecessary bill, 17 MILLION dollars. Pushing voting rights backwards is just wrong for Missouri. ”

Government

“The way bills are passed in Jefferson City is shady- they like to give them slick names like “Payroll Protection” and “Religious Liberty”. The real meanings of these bills are nothing like their deceptive titles.”

STRONGLY SUPPORT

Life, Liberty & the Pursuit of Happiness

“Expanding Medicaid in Missouri would provide healthcare to over 14,000 veterans, according to the Missouri foundation for health. Now that is real help for people and not just any people but for our veterans!”
