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

Answer from Ronica "Ronnie" Herman:

I have been a resident of the 92nd district for 14 years. I have worked in the service industry, and I know what families in our area are in need of. I am a wife and mother of 6 children with differing abilites. I think it will be refreshing to get a candidate in office with no prior political experience to get a fresh perspective.

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

Answer from Ronica "Ronnie" Herman:

I want to make quality education and healthcare a priority, along with strengthening Missouri's workforce and keeping jobs in Missouri.

Answer from William H. "Bill" Pinkston:

Immediate bill to legislature addressing returning war veteran bonuses.

Legislative bill to isolate MOHELA funding into a separate account which is not part of general state revenue.

I would ask the Speaker to have a review audit in which all committees were required to justify tobacco and gambling revenue appropriations.
