My experience in both the executive and legislative branches of state government prepared me to be an effective legislator from Day One, and my background as a businesswoman and community activist gives me a unique understanding of the issues. In just a few months in Jefferson City, I've built relationships on both sides of the aisle--relationships that are critical to helping Missouri move forward.
I serve on the General Laws, Health Insurance, and International Trade and Job Creation committees. I am dedicated to working with colleagues to create jobs and shepherd economic progress, support public education, increase access to health care, expand public transportation and ensure that essential government services are provided in a cost-efficient manner.
As a long-time advocate for social justice, I have seized numerous opportunities to continue to defend equal rights, reproductive rights and immigrant rights.
We must have a strong, statespersonlike, voice in the 71st district. We must begin to repair the damage caused by very conservative majorities in both chambers. My victory in the 71st District (parts of Chesterfield, Creve Coeur, Maryland Heights, Olivette, Overland and Unincorporated St. Louis County) will help that change happen.
With your help I can continue to work hard on behalf of the people of this district and the state with compassion and common sense.
