Every Missourian deserves affordable, quality healthcare. We have far too many Missourians who are uninsured or underinsured, and high healthcare costs are a strain for Missouri families.
Now that Missouri voters have passed Medicaid expansion, Maggie has fought to ensure it is properly implemented and funded. Maggie will continue to push to expand access to healthcare and mental health services.
It is imperative that everyone has access to safe, affordable reproductive healthcare. Missouri’s dangerous abortion ban means that women carrying non-viable pregnancies and survivors of rape and incest are now forced to give birth. Complicated medical decisions are best left to women, their families and their doctors- not legislators.
As a PTA mom and teacher, Maggie knows the importance of quality schools for families in the Northland. Maggie brings this experience to the Missouri House, where she is known for standing up for our public schools and teachers to ensure they can provide quality education for each and every student.
It is vital that schools across our state have the funding to provide quality education from early education to post-secondary. We must end the cuts to education and invest in our students. Investing in our students is an investment in our state, as we ensure students have the skills needed to enter the workforce.
Maggie supports investing in our crumbling infrastructure and programs that encourage the growth of small businesses in the Northland. We must continue to encourage the development of new businesses, services and innovations.
As we make our daily commutes and travel across our state, there is nothing more important than our safety and security. Missouri’s aging infrastructure is not only putting our families at risk, but it’s also preventing economic growth. Maggie believes we must invest in good, safe roads and bridges, while creating jobs.
Despite Missouri’s constitutional protections, there are powerful business interests and lobbyists working hard to restrict access to the civil justice system. Maggie strongly believes that everyday Missourians are entitled to a level playing field in our court system, regardless of wealth, gender, race or religion.
As the daughter of two attorneys, Maggie has seen firsthand how important it is that our courts are open to each and every person. As State Representative, she will fight to make sure the civil justice rights of Missourians are protected.
Maggie believes that our state government should be transparent, open, and lawmakers should be held accountable to the citizens of Missouri. Elected officials should listen to and work for their constituents, not special interests.
Missourians overwhelmingly voted for Clean MO and supported government transparency, fairness, and competitiveness. Maggie will stand up for and protect the will of the people.
As a union member, Maggie understands what it means to have our workers’ rights constantly under attack. She strongly opposed Prop A and worked to make sure that so called “Right to Work” was defeated. We know workers in Right to Work states have lower incomes and fewer benefits and it is wrong for Missouri. Period. We know that more money in the hands of hardworking Missouri goes right back into our community, benefiting all of us.
