Advocate for Education Excellence

According to, too many schools aren’t making the grade. Students are being left behind in reading and math, and many are being set up to fail instead of succeed. Depending on the source, Missouri ranks in the bottom five for teacher pay. We can do better—we need to do better! Instead of pulling funding from failing schools, let’s reward schools that emphasize mastery in reading, writing, and arithmetic. Let’s fund programs to improve math instruction and revamp how Title 1 instructs struggling readers.

Attract Jobs and Tax Dollars to Our Area

Through grants and incentives, we can attract quality businesses to Raytown and South KC. The sales taxes and job opportunities that new businesses generate in our area is a win-win for both residents and businesses. This is the type of economic development I will work toward at the state level for House District 28.

Limit County Property Taxes

People shouldn’t be taxed out of their homes, yet that’s exactly what is happening to many Jackson County residents—especially our senior citizens. I will work at the state level to ensure that property taxes are capped for seniors who own their homes and to limit how much the county can raise property taxes year over year.

Cut Taxes

We are taxed from the crib to the cemetery in this country, and enough is enough. Americans and Missourians should be able to keep more of their hard-earned money, and government entities should learn to operate on a budget and cut costs. By the time you consider property taxes; sales tax; fuel tax; business taxes; city and county taxes; state and federal income taxes; death and/or estate taxes, some of us are paying almost half of what we make in taxes! I will work to lower taxes FOR ALL every chance I get!

2nd Amendment

In the US Constitution, the Second Amendment states, "the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." Unfortunately, our federal government would like to severely limit our Constitutional right to own firearms and protect ourselves and our families. No one wants gun violence, but criminals don't follow laws—law-abiding citizens do. If you want to stop drunk drivers from harming people, do you take away alcohol and cars from everyone else? No, of course not! And you don't take away firearms from innocent people who have done nothing wrong and broken no laws. We protect our politicians with security guards. Why shouldn't we do the same to protect our children? I would like to see at least one armed resource officer in every public school building in Missouri. Perhaps with the huge surplus of funds from federal pandemic relief funds, we could make this happen.

Fund our Infrastructure Needs

As your State Legislator, I would work to access various grant opportunities to fund infrastructure needs in House District 28. I would partner with city leaders to bring grants to our area to improve our bridges, roads, and sewers. If I’m elected, I’ll have more access to resources that I can pass along to city and county leaders to improve our infrastructure.

Protect Women's Sports

Title IX has gone completely out the window over the past few years. Young women are losing out on college scholarships, opportunities, and awards because biological males are receiving them instead. This is just plain unfair. Additionally, as a mother with a daughter in high school sports, allowing biological males to play with or against young women is dangerous and puts female players at risk. This is not right, and I will work to protect the safety and efforts of young women in Missouri.

Protect Girls in School

In the fall of 2021, a female student was sexually assaulted by a male student wearing a skirt at a Virginia high school.  When young women are in their most vulnerable position—with their pants down and taking care of their bathroom needs—they should be protected . . . not wondering if they will be attacked by a male student who proclaims he's a female. Our daughters shouldn't have to worry about their safety in school bathrooms and locker rooms. Period.

Election Integrity

I've been working with Missouri Canvassers since November 2021. It's a group that is dedicated to cleaning up the state's voter rolls, uncovering election issues, and ensuring our votes count. I've knocked on many doors and spoken with many people, and we have serious problems that need to be addressed to make sure Missouri elections are fair and accurate. (I spoke with a man whose father died 10 years ago, but who voted in the 2020 election; I talked with a woman and her husband who voted, but the secretary of state shows no vote for them; and I talked with a woman who told me her neighbors got a bunch of mail-in ballots, sent them in, then voted on election day in-person!) I will work to pass legislation to ensure election integrity from local elections all the way to federal elections.

Medical Freedom

Many many people were helped by off-label drugs like Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine when they became ill with Covid-19. Unfortunately, governing agencies made it almost impossible for patients to get these life-saving medications and threatened doctors who wanted to prescribe them! The government doesn't belong in the middle of the doctor-patient relationship . . . EVER! The government shouldn't be telling doctors how to practice medicine! Other states have passed laws making IVM and HCQ over-the-counter, and I think that would be a big step in the right direction for Missouri too.


As a believer in Jesus Christ, I believe all life is sacred, from the womb to the tomb. Abortion stops a beating heart and takes the life of an innocent child who is being formed by God Himself and who has a God-ordained purpose (Psalm 139:13–16; Deuteronomy 30:19; Jeremiah 1:5).
