"I am running for the Missouri House of Representative as a passionate Progressive Democrat to represent the people of Missouri’s needs. I have joined every progressive group I am aware of, and I have attended every march, protest, and rally that I could. I began to feel like I was making a difference, but as I became more engaged I desired to create change rather than hope that our voices were heard.
I see people everyday suffering because of bad legislation passed in the Missouri House, and most of it is painted as good for the people. The reality is that most of it is shady, and simply a way to take care of wealthy campaign donors, hurting the marginalized working class. Low incomes and bad tax policies are harming our citizens. Many people in Missouri and my district depend on the emergency room for healthcare, cannot afford childcare, and are watching state support for their school districts fall. Those who are a part of minority and/or marginalized populations, such as the LGBTQ community, people of color, ethnic or religious groups, women, and victims of our bias judicial system face even tougher circumstances. There are many ways to keep poor and marginalized people poor and marginalized, and republicans have checked every box on that list.
The Missouri GOP-led House has no concern for low income and middle class people who are breaking their backs for a CEO’s new yacht. It is time for me to stop feeling helpless and step up. I am ready to work for the constituents of District 133 and for the state of Missouri, my neighbors and friends.
When I am elected, I will combat any immoral legislation that would harm the working class. This is my promise." - Cindy Slimp
