    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.

    Although America presents itself as the epitome of social organization we continue to suffer from being unable to live up to the last words of our Pledge of Allegiance, “…and justice for all.” If America is to intentionally become a more perfect union, civil liberties and civil rights must also be continually explored, questioned, clarified, refined, and balanced.

    We should be an open community that welcomes everyone with open arms. We should also stand up when people are discriminated against based upon who they are. It's wrong. That's why I would strongly back these protections.

    I look at issues through three lenses: someone considering to establish roots in Indy, an Indy business owner deciding where to expand, and an out-of-state business looking to relocate her company. To ensure Indy is the best choice, I absolutely support equality for all. I believe strongly in personal freedom, tolerance, lack of government pertinence, and sexual orientation as a protected class.
