To the voters in Missouri State Representative District 94, thank you for electing me to represent you. The next couple of years are going to be important for the future of South County, and I'm honored by the trust you've placed in me.

My husband, Frank, and I love living in South County. It's been a great place to raise our daughter, and we've found a community that pulls together to make things better. South County is worth taking care of!

I've learned to trust my neighbors by listening to them and watching them. South County is a safe place, because we support our police. We can provide a good education for our children, because we're involved in our school districts. Being involved is the answer.

I've also seen my neighbors organize themselves to help those in need, just because they care. I've tried to do as much as I can to pitch in, but I am always amazed at how many heroes there are in South County!

I too care about South County. When I'm in Jefferson City, I will stand up for our values, and I will not compromise on the things that make our community great.

I promise to work full-time representing South County in Jefferson City, January through December, just as I have in the past. And I promise to accept no gifts from lobbyists. I didn't accept them before, and I won't accept them in the future. I promise to work for you, and not for lobbists and special interests!
