O'Fallon Board of Aldermen, elected in 1994, 1996, 1998, 2000.
Missouri House of Representatives, elected in 2002, 2004, 2006, 2008. St. Charles County Central Committeewoman, elected in 2006, 2008 and 2010. During that time I served as the State Committeewoman for the Second Senatorial District and the Chairman of the St. Charles County Republican Central Committee.
I will highlight the true gems of our state, which are a great workforce with a vigorous work ethic, two spectacular rivers which provide excellent transportation and energy generation capabilities. The way to attract more economic development is to start treating businesses with the respect they deserve, less regulation and taxation. Our businesses are the "geese that lay the golden eggs". I earned the Friend of "Agriculture Award" for my ability to understand business dynamics.
I was the legislator who filed the original "Health Care Freedom" bill to protect our citizens from being forced to participate in Obamacare. This law grows government bigger, more intrusive, more expensive and exacerbates the problems it seeks to address. As your Lt. Gov., you can be confident that I will continue fighting to protect our citizens from all laws that absorb and redistribute our hard earned dollars.
We need to cultivate policies that protecting innocent life, liberty, property rights, marriage and taxpayers. I will work to restore constitutional government. My weekly newsletter chronicles the happenings of our state government. This will continue as Lt. Governor.
Most importantly, I will perform the duties of the office by proactively engaging in legislative debates and breaking tie votes.
Politics has become a dirty business, but it won't get better if we abandon the process. We owe it to ourselves to fight for fiscal conservatism and constitutionally limited government as well as expecting moral conduct from our leaders. As the only "Missouri Right to Life" endorsed candidate, my record shows I am a champion Pro-Life, Pro-Gun, Pro-Family and Pro-Taxpayer advocate. I will hold them all accountable and give voters a genuine choice.
