The 2014 Democratic Primary Election, Tuesday, August 5th, will be here before we know it. I would like to enlist your support for my campaign for re-election to the Missouri House of Representatives in the 88th District.

My previous experience in the executive and legislative branches, combined with my non-profit and corporate work, enables me to hit the ground running. I will bring my energy, passion and careful approach to increasing access to health care, creating jobs, supporting public education, standing up for consumers, protecting the environment, and ensuring government services are provided in a cost-efficient manner. The foundation of my efforts will always be social justice and equal rights for all.

We must have a strong, statespersonlike, voice in the 88th district. We must begin to repair the damage caused by very conservative majorities in both chambers. My victory in the 88th District (includes most of Creve Coeur, Olivette and Westwood as well as parts of Ladue, Frontenac, Town & Country, Chesterfield and unincorporated St. Louis County) will help that change happen.

With your help I can continue to work hard on behalf of the people of this district and the state with compassion and common sense.

Sincerely yours,
