As a political outsider, I have long been disgusted with how elections in this country run. If you are too, please read on.
No Dark Money!
I believe in clean elections that are funded by direct individual donations. That means I will NOT accept ANY campaign money from political action committees (PACs or super PACs), lobbyists, or special interests. All donations will come only from individuals. I want to work for YOU my fellow citizens in Jefferson City, not special interests, lobbyists, or dark money donors!
Elections create a great deal of waste. Even just direct mailers and yard signs alone create a tremendous amount because so much is simply tossed right into the trash (and often rightfully so!). As environmental concerns are a top priority, I promise to use only recycled and recyclable printed campaign materials and to make a concerted effort to minimize the barrage of wasteful and often annoying election materials.
No Attack Ads
Politics has gotten way too ugly. I believe a candidate should be able to explain and promote their own beliefs and values instead of constantly attacking their opponents. As a veterinarian, pet owners trust me with the lives and well being of their pets and to be honest and have integrity in all that I do professionally. Integrity is doing the right thing when no one is watching. I will keep up those same principles for this campaign and beyond.
Supporting Local Small Businesses
As a small business owner myself, I understand it our local small businesses that keep our local economy strong. I pledge to use locally owned companies as much as possible to make campaign materials like business cards, signs, t-shirts, and more!
