Questions & Answers

1. What are your Qualifications for Office? (200 word limit)

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)

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.
