It is an honor to have served the past two years in the MO House of Representatives representing the 119th District. Due to recent redistricting, I will be running for re-election in the new 129th District, which is all of Dallas County and part of Laclede County.
I am a lifelong resident of Dallas County. My husband John and I have been married for thirty six years. We are landowners, and we raise beef cattle. Prior to becoming State Representative I enjoyed a thirty year banking career, which helped me develop both good communication and good decision making skills. Both of these are vital to be an effective State Representative.
I have been a member of Tabernacle Baptist Church in Lebanon for almost twelve years, where I teach a Primary Girls Sunday School Class.
Since being elected, I have established a conservative, pro-agriculture, pro-business, pro-life, pro-Second Amendment voting record. I have worked in Jefferson City to protect agriculture by fighting the HSUS, to lower regulations on business, to protect life, and we passed a balanced budget without a tax increase. I recently received Associated Industries of Missouri’s Friend of Manufacturing and Industry award. Small businesses are the backbone of our state’s economy. I believe we should promote legislation that makes our state more attractive for businesses, and I have the voting record to prove that.
I believe education is important. I graduated from Buffalo High School in 1975. Ten years later I decided to go to college. After going to night school for almost ten years, I graduated “cum laude” from Southwest Missouri State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Finance. I worked full time during the day while going to school at night. I believe this proves that when I start something, I do not quit! I am also a 1998 graduate of the Graduate School of Banking at Colorado.
I believe my experience, voting record, and qualifications make me your best choice for State Representative for the 129th District. I would appreciate your vote on November 6th!
