General***HEALTH CARE FOR ALL MISSOURIANS- More than 750,000 Missourians have NO health insurance, and many others are underinsured, just one illness away from medical bankruptcy. As your representative, I will work to promote accessible and affordable health care for all. ***EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES - Missouri ranks near the bottom in education funding and teacher salaries. As your representattive, I will work to ensure that our schools recieve the resources needed to meet high academic standards...recruit and retain quality teacher...and prepare the next generation for the challenges of the 21st century. ***ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITIES - Families in Missouri are struggling with the rapidly rising costs of gas, groceries and college tuition. As your representative, I will work to develop preogressive economic strategies for our state, including investment in clean technology...workforce training...and tools and incentives that create quality jobs. ***ENERGY AND THE ENVIRONMENT - Missourians are spending more than $16 billion a year to import energy. As your representative, I will support a long-range energy pllan for our state - one which stimulates our economy though the development of clean, sustainable energy sources. In addition, I will work to preserve our state's natural beauty and resources - our water, air and public lands - for future generations to enjoy.
