Educational opportunity is the key to future success in life. Our children are fortunate to have some of the best schools in the state, but we must continue to innovate to remain the best.
Keeping our 2-year and 4-year colleges strong and tuition affordable is vital to create the opportunity we need. Creative programs and apprenticeships that partner with business for non-college bound students help serve more students.
Missouri can do much more to support innovation, entrepreneurship, and new business startups.
With better state-wide policies we can build our economy, improve the image of Saint Louis as a national center for tech, health care, and medical research industries, and make St. Louis a more attractive employment destination for our kids.
Missouri’s healthcare system is archaic and inefficient. Shifting to a value-based care system will save lives and reduce costs.*
We can improve care for all Missourians if we remove political road blocks to a state-wide opioid database, to policies that reduce Missouri's shockingly high infant mortality and maternal mortality rates, and to capping costs for life-saving prescriptions such as epi pens, asthma inhalers, and insulin.

Affordable access to birth control is key to preventing unplanned pregnancies and reducing abortion rates. Access to safe, legal abortion care, especially in cases of incest and rape, saves women's lives.
We can respect the 2nd Amendment and pass common sense gun-safety laws that help law enforcement keep our communities safe, protect women and children from abusers, and keep guns out of the hands of criminals.
Laws that force business owners, state colleges, day cares, and churches to allow conceal carry are not good for business and do not make us safer.
