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

Answer from Jeanne Kirkton:

Nurses are critical thinkers, decision makers and problem solvers as well as advocates and liaisons. These attributes serve me well as a Webster Groves City Councilmember. Because I understand the implications of state policy on local government, I am prepared to make sure that legislation is beneficial for my community.

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

Answer from Jeanne Kirkton:

I believe that a government that meets its basic obligations to all citizens in the matters of fiscal responsibility, public education, health care, clean environment and infrastructure will attract more employers to Missouri and help build our economic strength in a manner that's good for everyone. That's good government.
