Why I’m Running

As a lifelong resident of West St. Louis County, I am excited to be running for the Missouri Senate because I believe we need an effective, qualified voice representing our community and our values in Jefferson City. As a successful small business owner, I know first hand the struggles our job creators face dealing with overbearing government regulations and increasing taxes.

My wife, Brooke, and I have 5 kids: Jeremiah who is 15, Isaac who is 12, Gideon who is 11, and Lily and Levi who are 5. We are active members of the West County Assembly of God, and we are very involved in our community.

I have a proven record of successfully fighting for working class Missourians in Jefferson City. I am proud to have sponsored and passed the first Missouri income tax cut in nearly a century, fought against crony capitalism and corporate handouts to big business, and been a champion of cutting government waste. As State Senator, I will continue to stand for life with unwavering conviction for our shared values.

As a candidate for State Senate I support an agenda that:

  • Is against corporate handouts to billionaires and big businesses
  • Removes barriers to adoption and cuts costs piled on to families looking to adopt children in need
  • Fosters a Pro-Business environment to secure a strong economy
  • Provides full and additional funding to K-12 Education so our public schools can provide our kids with a first-class education

I have enjoyed meeting many of you as I have knocked on your doors, and I look forward to seeing you again!
