Questions & Answers

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

I was first elected to the Creve Coeur City Council in 1999. I held that post until 2003, when I began serving my first of three terms in the Missouri House of Representatives. In 2002, Gov. Bob Holden appointed me to the Missouri Senior Rx Board, where I fought to ensure access to cheaper prescriptions for seniors. As a medical doctor, I have seen the faces of patients who can't afford all the prescriptions they need. Missouri needs a lieutenant governor who knows what those families are going through.

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

The lieutenant governor is responsible for boards and commissions dealing with all these issues. I will work with Jay Nixon, not against him, to accomplish these goals.
