Questions & Answers

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

As a 30-year teacher, believing in public service, I have served in leadership positions in many local and state educational, women's, and political organizations. I was the recipient of the Women Legislators of Missouri's "Dedication to Education" and the Missouri NEA's "Individual Excellence in Political Action" awards.

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

I place high priorities on improving affordability and availability of health care for individuals, and opportunities for small businesses to provide affordable employee healthcare benefits. Creating "green collar jobs", protecting our environment, funding our k-12 public schools, and providing affordable higher education are concerns we must address.
