What office are you running for?
U.S Congress MO 3rd District

Why are you running for office?
I am running because people in my district need a choice. They can choose between my opponent, a career politician or an everyday working class citizen like myself. I have the same issues as my neighbors around me and I know what is important to their daily lives.

What is the biggest issue facing your community and how do you propose helping?
The costs of healthcare and the raging Opioid crisis are major issues in my community that need to be addressed. We also need to support small agricultural businesses and focus on public schools and support of our teachers.

How do we fix the partisan divide in our country and start working together again?
We need to listen to what really matters to our neighbors. Focusing on the most pressing issues and opening a dialogue will naturally lead to teamwork.

My father. A retired police chief.

What are your hobbies?
Karaoke, previous duets champion

Do you have any kids/pets/talking houseplants?
Two dogs, a Chihuahua named Hillary Rodham and a Corgi named Foxy

Fundraising is critical as I am already far behind my General Election Opponent
