Economic Development, Workforce Development, Public Administration and Agriculture are my main areas of expertise and where I believe I can make the biggest contributions. But I am also passionate about education and healthcare. I have family that work in both of those fields and rely on their knowledge to advise me on the issues that are most pressing.
Missouri is such a diverse state that we have to stop treating it like "one-size-fits-all." Urban issues are not rural issues and vice versa. And given the burden the pandemic has placed on our economy, we will need to prioritize our needs in these different areas until the economy recovers sufficiently to fund all programs as they should be funded.
