Questions & Answers

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

I'm a small business owner who knows the concerns of my district. I've brought opposing sides together for the common good of a project or a community being built and got the job done. I've been effective in Jefferson City on issues like campaign finance reform and smart energy policies.

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

The common theme of my priorities is based on the economic strength of the state, and we can all agree on that. I'll bring people together as I have in my work, find the common ground, and work with a sense of urgency to create the real progress we deserve.
