My son's illness has highlighted all aspects of the health care system. I believe that I can bring these experiences to Jefferson City and put people ahead of politics. My background in law and in local government as a Glendale Alderman will allow me to grasp a multitude of issues.

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

I plan to tackle the gridlock between insurers, doctors and hospitals to ensure that was are putting patients' needs first. My history of building broader coalitions between both business and labor groups will enable me to achieve problem-solving solutions to the issues facing our economy.
