This page is for you, for all Missourians
I. Our Economy
I recognize that to grow our Missouri economy, we must support local farms, keep manufacturing jobs in Missouri, and help small businesses to grow.
The economic well-being of rural communities through the preservation of small businesses and family farms and fair agricultural prices
Sustaining and expanding products that are made in Missouri
Giving small business owners the chance to expand and grow with government investment opportunities, including the expansion of ownership by economically disadvantaged groups, minorities, and women
Affordable housing for all Missourians
I recognize that for Missouri to have a skilled labor force it must have strong labor unions that will teach, defend, and sustain the worker for Missouri's economy.
Legislation that will defend our Labor Unions and expand labor rights
Establishing universal childcare and paid maternity leave for both parents
Raising the minimum wage to $15/hour and ensure that anyone who works full-time in Missouri earns wage above the poverty lines
Zero tolerance toward sexual harassment
III. Health Care
I believe that access to healthcare is a fundamental right and not a privilege.
Sustaining the Affordable Care Act and Medicaid
The development of a single payer, Medicare For All healthcare system
Maintaining a comprehensive Prescription Drug Monitoring Program, that gives prescribers the tools they need to prevent and reduce opioid addiction and deaths
IV. Civil Rights/Human Rights
I believe in equal treatment under the law for every Missourian regardless of race, color, age, physical, intellectual, and/or developmental abilities, economic status, religion, creed, sex, national origin, ethnicity, veteran or military status, sexual orientation, or gender identity. I support adding "sexual orientation and gender identity" to the non-discrimination laws and policies of our state, and the passage of hate crime legislation to protect equal rights.
I believe that every child in Missouri should have access to a free, quality, public education regardless of zip code.
A fully funded public-school system foundation, including full funding for school meal programs for those in need
Affordable colleges at all Missouri's public Universities' with a limit on the amount of student debt that can be incurred
I believe that Missouri's natural resources must be protected, and our national and state parks must be maintained. From our lakes and rivers, plains in the North and Ozark Mountains to the South, we must take responsibility for our states natural wonders.
Strengthen environmental standards for clean air and water and institute plastic bag bans, straw bans, and other environmental protections
VII. Tax and Budget Policy
I believe that to have a strong economy, we must have a tax policy that supports working families, a sound fiscal policy, and a balanced budget.
VIII. Public Safety and Crime Prevention
I advocate for law enforcement policies that protect constitutional rights combined by crime prevention programs that emphasize education, treatment, and health care. We must have a criminal justice system that focuses on rehabilitation, is fair, and works to decrease the number of people who are incarcerated.
Reasonable firearm policies that promote public safety and crime prevention without infringing on second amendment rights
Community policing that build positive relationships in our communities
I know that we must address our crumbling infrastructure and put Missourians to work while creating a 21st Century infrastructure system by rebuilding roads, highways, main streets, and bridges, and also expand broadband accessibility to all areas of Missouri.
X. Governmental Accountability to the Public
I pledge to protect the rights of all citizens through fair elections, responsible government, and decreasing the influence of special interests in our political process to ensure that people, not large corporations and special interests, control our elections.
