"I believe in Democracy, People First. If We the People are First Priority in America, everything else would fall in to place.  If Reconciliation, reformation, collaboration and cooperation would take place, so many tax paying Americans wouldn't be so disgruntled with politics.  Politicians would represent ALL people regardless of party, zip code or any other affiliation."

It would be my pleasure to represent every person in Missouri. #Peoplefirst

DEMOCRACY 

Representation, Participation, and Emancipation. The First Amendment guarantees freedoms concerning religion, expression, assembly, and the right to petition.

 
FIGHTING INJUSTICE

I will fight for policies that protect the humanity, the economic dignity and the well-being of all people.  I will stand against policies that seek to be barriers against democracy and to exclude the most vulnerable Americans economically, educationally and politically.

HEALTHCARE

I support every person having the right to quality, affordable, and accessible healthcare.  I support Medicare for All.(S.1129). Those that have their private insurance can continue with what they have if they so choose.  I support expanding and providing comprehensive care in Missouri's rural areas. I am an advocate for Medicaid Expansion. We made some progress but we need to keep striving for continuous improvement until we see the results we want to see in regards to "We the People"  I support lowering prescription drugs by perhaps developing competition. No monopoly on pharmacists, force them to compete to help us keep our healthcare stabilized and affordable.  I support S. 97 –Medicare Dental Benefit Act of 2021, S.1873 Medicare Multi-Cancer Early Detection Screening Act of 2021, S. 826 Medicare Patient Empowerment Act of 2021 , S.2048 Improving Access to Medicare Coverage Act of 2021- 117th, S.833 Empowering Medicare Seniors to Negotiate Drug Prices Act of 2021.

SUSTAINABLE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

The pandemic has highlighted the economic divide in Missouri and across America.  Let's analyze taxes and spending and make sure funds are allocated appropriately.  Hardworking Missourians have been impacted and we must as a whole ensure that all are represented.  As a single parent, I lived through trying to make ends meet to ensure that my family was fed and cared for. I will work tirelessly to make sure that families in Missouri have access to jobs in rural Missouri and every corner of Missouri and to ensure that families have access to affordable childcare and PreK as Parents go back to work. This pandemic has also reinforced our belief that all workers deserve paid sick leave.  All families deserve a living wage.  The pandemic has also made families more vulnerable to predatory lenders.  I support and will fight to ensure that the Veterans and Consumers Fair Credit Act is passed.

I also support fighting for affordable housing and programs that will help homeless veterans.  In addition, working to make sure all have access to the internet. I support Country of Origin labeling and support to our row crop producers.  I support a national adaption policy that includes investment in infrastructure, flood mitigation efforts and sustainable farming and communication and collaboration with the entire communities. I support initiatives to promote and assist with Education Initiatives, Economic Development, Crime Prevention, Family, and Financial Literacy.

EDUCATION

I support education for public schools.  They should be adequately funded without any restrictions.

VOTING REFORM

Let's reason together and define Election Integrity!   Let's move forward (All Parties, Bipartisan). This is a distraction.  To ensure that the right to vote is no longer at risk. I support S.1 – For the People Act of 2021and S. 481 Democracy Restoration Act of 2021.

GUN VIOLENCE, MASS INCARCERATION, PRISON REFORM, MENTAL HEALTH, REHABILITATIVE PROGRAMS AND URBAN INITIATIVES.

A growing number of children die daily across Missouri and America because of Gun violence.  Our children deserve reform now!  I support the second amendment, not advocating for it but it can be effective with gun control.  Public safety is something we must be concerned about. Everyone has to be protected.  It can be done in a proper and adequate way.  Background checks on All Gun Sales and Waiting Periods so guns do not get into the wrong hands. 

I support funding programs that will help with mental health, substance abuse and programs that help rehabilitate individuals. 

CLIMATE CHANGE

I support Education Awareness in regards to climate change and its importance to public health in urban, corn harvests and rural areas.  I also support tax and financial incentives for Renewable Energy.  We should use all of our resources.  We need clean air.

Let's continue to move forward so we can see results that benefits ALL people.  Let's strive for continuous improvement. Healthcare is a Human Right. https://mydss.mo.gov/healthcare/apply

We're better together!

My win doesn't have to look like your win. #IWin

I'm tired of the hate, bigotry, and biases. Pass the Anti-Black Hate Crime. Enough is Enough! 

I walk by faith and not by sight!

The media acts like I'm invisible. But Still I Rise!

May 30, 2022
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion.  But facts are facts.  My baby was not just a clump of tissue, he was my baby boy. It becomes quite offensive to hear that over and over again.  The pain and emptiness I endured to leave the hospital empty. If he were alive he'd be 22 years old. He was my third child.  This is my story.

How many more innocent lives have to be taken?  Pass H.R 8 Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2021.  That is not gun control,  It can save lives from those with mental health and hate/race issues.   Please listen. 5.25.2022
