1. What are your Qualifications for Office? (50 word limit)

Answer from Jill Schupp:

I have been elected in each of my three bids for public office: twice to the Ladue School Board, and most recently to the Creve Coeur City Council. Whether in the schools working with students, or through Naturally Occurring Retirement Communities (NORC) supporting seniors, I work community-wide building non-partisan alliances.

2. What plans do you have to address your top three priorities? (50 word limit)

Answer from Jill Schupp:

I will roll up my sleeves and work collaboratively supporting investments in Early Childhood Education and College Access, which actually pay for themselves many times over. I will continue to support our values in a fiscally responsible manner. Affordable, quality healthcare is essential and doable when we use dollars wisely.
