Two years Assistant Attorney General 10 year elected s Cass County Prosecutor Four years member of Senate Judiciary Committee Approximately 20 homicide convictions Two Supreme Court victories Thousands of felony convictions in Missouri criminal court

? 2. What plans do you have to address your top three priorities? (100 word limit)

Answer from Chris Koster:

I had more prevailing wage convictions than any prosecutor. I will take that work ethic to the Attorney General's office. I wrote the Medicaid fraud bill. Aggressive use of this statute will return tens of millions of dollars into the Medicaid system. Ten years of first-hand experience trying cases makes me the most qualified candidate.
