Questions & Answers

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

I served as a school board member, state representative and state senator. During my last term, I was the Democratic Leader in the Senate. I passed legislation to end the sales tax on food, enacted a middle class tax cut and authored the largest scholarship bill in Missouri history.

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

I will go to work in Washington. I'll use the same energy and passion that I exhibited in the Missouri Legislature and fight for the issues important to Missouri. I am the most experienced and accomplished candidate running for the 9th district. I'll take that experience and fight for Missouri.
