MWLC Endorses Marcie Nichols!

Marcie Nichols for Missouri House District 119"Hello! My name is Marcie Nichols. I am a Democratic candidate for State Representative in the 119th District.  I want to earn your vote.

I believe that it’s critical for the needs of ALL Missourians to be represented in our state government.  Missouri will be looking for ways to compensate for recent tax cuts. I am a strong supporter of a balanced budget, but I fear that the first line of attack will hurt those most in need.  Prime targets will be retirees, elderly, disabled and children.  I will be your voice and advocate to continue to provide essential services.   

My top priorities:

  • Protect Social Security, Disability, Medicare/Medicaid and Affordable Health Care
  • Actively work with Missouri Teachers and Administrators to assure our children receive the quality education at Primary, Elementary, High School and College levels.
  • Address the Opioid epidemic that has a stronghold on many families within MO House District 119 and the entire state of Missouri

The time has come for legislators to reach across the aisle and find common ground solutions.  I will work to make this happen by utilizing communication, compassion and common sense.

My Story

I am a lifelong resident of Sullivan, Missouri. I’ve been married to Ted Nichols for 41 years and together we have two children, four grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren.

I graduated from Sullivan High School and attended East Central College. I was employed by Fidelity Communications for 42 years, eventually attaining the title of Director and finally Vice President of Customer Care. I retired in December 2016 and during the past two years have enjoyed remodeling our dream retirement home, which originally was a rundown cabin on the Meramec River. 

This is my first time running for political office. My only political experience is a short stint sitting on the Planning and Zoning Board for the City of Sullivan. My experience in the Corporate world and working for the care of the public gives me insight into caring for the citizens of Missouri. I am looking forward to this journey and hope you will join me.

Let’s support more heart and less hate in Missouri politics!" - Marcie Nichols, MWLC's endorsed candidate for Missouri House District 119.

MWLC Endorses Ronna Ford!

Ronna Ford for Missouri House District 129

"Ronna retired after a 30-year teaching career in 2013 and has since taken on the work of being an education and community activist. During her career, she raised more than $300,000 in grants to supplement her programs. Her biggest achievement was raising enough money to build a pro-grade culinary kitchen for her students studying Restaurant Management, one of Missouri’s first ServSafe-certified high school programs. She took a second job cooking at a country club to earn enough work hours to become one of the first ProStart Certified teachers in the state. She also co-wrote the personal finance curriculum that was mandated by Missouri law in 2004. 

She decided to run for elected office after the 2016 election. Only about 10 percent of the representatives in the current Missouri House are teachers or former teachers. Her goal is to fight for family-sustaining wages for all workers, but particularly those in public service. She wants to be a fierce advocate for children and families." Ronna Ford, MWLC's endorsed candidate for Missouri House District 129.

MWLC Endorses Elizabeth Lundstrum!

Elizabeth Lundstrum for Missouri House District 161"My name is Elizabeth Lundstrum. I grew up in Southern California but I have made Joplin, Missouri my home for the past 24 years. My husband Chad and I have been married for 22 years and have 3 children- Our daughter Sarah is in her third year of college, our son Luke just graduated from high school and our daughter Abby is going into her junior year.  I hold a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature, a Master of Science in Educational Media Design and Technology as well as an Early Childhood and Special Education certification in Missouri.

I have been an educator for 27 years – 20 years in special education and 7 in general education classrooms. I have taught students from the Pre-K level up to high school.  I also worked as a contractor for the Division of Family Services and taught Life Skills classes to teens in foster care between the ages of 16-18 years.

My platform issues include:

Education – making good informed decisions based on data and research that will improve our schools and create educational environments that are conducive to all learners AND teachers/staff.  

Equality- I am a firm proponent of equal work and equal pay. I also want to champion for women’s rights in regards to harassment and gender discrimination.  

Healthcare- affordable and accessible healthcare is very important to me.  

Environment- Clean air, soil, and water is vital for our food sources. We live in an agricultural state- it is imperative that we have restrictions on businesses that create pollution as a byproduct of their industry.  

I have recently been endorsed by Moms Demand Action. It horrifies me as an educator and mother that 2 horrific school shootings have occurred within a 90 day period. I do believe in sensible and responsible gun laws that will prevent these type of incidents from perpetually occurring.

I am running for Missouri state representative because I want to affect change at the legislative level which will impact EVERY person in Missouri. Our lawmakers should represent the average person – and champion for our most vulnerable populations including the elderly, children, marginalized populations, and individuals with disabilities. It appears to me lately that too many politicians fall trap to the corporate lobbyists in their decision making and put money before people.

I am opinionated, strong in my convictions and have the tenacity to follow through with whatever issue/cause I am pursuing at the time.

District 161 (greater Joplin area) is mostly metropolitan but also includes some rural parts. We have many small businesses but also many industries/ factories that employ our citizens. The demographic make-up is primarily middle class but also a small amount of affluent and lower socioeconomic.  District 161 has a history of low voter turnout in local and state elections. District 161 also is primarily led by Republican voters versus Democrat voters." Elizabeth Lundstrum, MWLC's endorsed candidate for Missouri House District 161.

MWLC Endorses Cindy Slimp!

Cindy Slimp for Missouri House District 133

"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, MWLC's endorsed candidate for Missouri House District 133.

MWLC Endorses Theresa Schmitt!

Theresa Schmitt for Missouri House District 120"Theresa Schmitt has a wealth of experience that she brings to representing Missouri House District 120.  She is a certified aviation mechanic and successfully worked in that field when it was anything but welcoming to women.  She grew up raising and training horses and worked in that field at Boys’ Town upon her return to Crawford County.  As a realtor, she learned a lot about land values and how to work with people to fulfill their dreams of owning a home.  Most recently, she has chosen to pursue a new degree in political science and communication.  She can handle anything the world throws at her and she is ready to work for her chosen community.

As a single mother most of the time that she was raising her children, Theresa knows firsthand how hard it is to make a go of it in rural Missouri.  Choosing to raise her children in the city of Steelville, she bought an upholstery business and taught herself how to reupholster furniture, boats, automobile seats and motorcycle seats.  She continues to support herself as a small business owner, making it a challenge to afford healthcare, especially with a preexisting condition.   Not only is affordability an issue, but availability is also a problem.  More and more rural hospitals are closing and there is a huge lack of general practice physicians.  She is fully aware of these problems.

Theresa is a very compassionate and caring person who cares about her local community and deliberately reaches out and makes herself available to those in need.  Because of her outreach, she has had her eyes opened to other problems in this area such as the opioid crisis, underfunded schools, lack of jobs and stagnant wages, and infrastructure issues such as limited broadband Internet and crumbling roads and bridges.

After reaching out to help locally, Theresa is now ready to take these issues to the state level to work for change.  She has established herself as one who is willing to listen to our concerns and work for us in Jefferson City.  She is also committed to running a transparent campaign and serving with integrity." Theresa Schmitt, MWLC's endorsed candidate for Missouri House District 120.

MWLC Endorses Barbara Marco!

Barbara Marco for Missouri House District 118

"I am running for State Rep in District 118, which includes Southern Jefferson County and about 1/3 of Washington County, from Hillsboro thru Potosi. 

I am a first-time candidate that has owned and operated several small businesses in the past 30 years.  I have had to compensate for the faulty policies that state and federal legislators make. We must do better.

As I door-knock, voters in my district tell me that they are concerned with rejecting Right To Work, upholding the 2nd Amendment and gun safety, healthcare, education, and wasting taxpayer money." Barbara Marco, MWLC's endorsed candidate for Missouri House District 118.

MWLC Endorses Ashley Fajkowski!

Ashley Fajkowski for Missouri House District 62
"I filed to be a candidate after I learned the current representative in my district was running unopposed, two business days before close.  I'm a stay-at-home parent, who left work because childcare cost more than I made.  I was raised by a single mother, who was the first person in our family to graduate high school and who worked full-time while she finished college to try to give me opportunities she never had.  My grandmother left school in the 5th grade to raise her brothers and never got to go back; We lost her to cancer two years after she retired.  I want better for our women, for all of Missouri.
My district, 62, is rural; We are between Rolla and Jefferson City.  The issues here are the same ones you will find all across our state.  Our public schools are hurting, our people can't afford their medications or get treatment, and our rivers and land are under threat from corporate pollution.  Our workers are in danger of losing their ability to protect their pay, their time.  I knew I had to be more than just a name on a ballot when I began my research into legislation, and how our current representatives are voting.  We need more people who value education, health care, and our environment in positions to assure these areas are being given the attention they deserve.  We need more women making politics their business." - Ashley Fajkowski, MWLC's endorsed candidate for Missouri House District 62.

MWLC Endorses Lisa Buhr!

Lisa Buhr for Missouri House District 49"I’ve worked for the State for over 18 years, the last 5 right in the capitol building, and I see first hand how our legislators pass bills that don’t seem to benefit Missourians. It's frustrating. It's almost like they’ve forgotten that they work for us.

Before I filed, a coworker showed me an article that said over 40% of candidates had no opponent in the last election, and it shocked me. So on the last day of filing I thought to myself not in my district, this year’s gonna be different.

I plan on running a campaign focused on protecting workers rights, ensuring access to quality affordable healthcare, and fully meeting the needs of Missouri’s k-12 schools." - Lisa Buhr, MWLC's endorsed candidate for Missouri House District 49.

MWLC Endorses Connie Simmons!

Connie Simmons for Missouri House District 53District 53 is a rural district to the east of Kansas City. Which includes Lafayette, Johnson and even some of Jackson County. Towns such as Lexington, Higginsville, Odessa, Bates City, Waverly, and everything in between. Mostly farm land, historic places, churches, schools, and a few orchards, with an extensive strip of I-70 running through.

"As Representative for the 53rd district, I will look out for our children’s future and the future of education, healthcare, job growth and pay for those jobs and our rural life. I will make choices that the people of district 53 want and need, not what a political party wants and thinks it needs.

Who am I?

I am a retiring school counselor. I have spent the last 24 years listening to students and parents talk about their issues, problems, situations and helping come up with solutions or simply supporting and encouraging them. I am a wife, mother and grandmother who enjoys my family, farm life and the environment. I was raised in Holden Missouri by my father, lifelong member of Carpenter’s Local 61, and my mother, a cashier at Wal-Mart.  Met Fred, my husband of 36 years, the week before I started college at CMSU. We have 2 children, Matt, who married his High School sweetheart, Vanessa. They have two children Tristan and Coretta. My daughter, Liz, is married to Jeremy. They are all college graduates as education has always been an important part of our lives. These and other life events have led me to believe in the importance of public education, equal rights for women, Union support, healthcare, and fair wages for jobs.

I am an advocate and have always had an open door policy. This won’t change once I am elected. I have always been a bluntly honest person and I want to know what my district wants so I can truly represent them. The only way to do that is to invite them to share with me and discuss with me their needs.

What kind of experience do I have?

  • 24 years as a School Counselor at the following schools, Chilhowee K-12, Oak Grove High School, Ray-Pec High School, Blue Springs High School and Blue Springs Freshman Center.
  • Owning and operating my own small Antique Shop first in Pleasant Hill, then Warrensburg and Blue Springs. Closing it last year and now renting a booth in another shop.
  • Living on a cattle farm for most of my life and being involved in all aspects of the farm including risk management, farm operations and the buying and selling of farm products.
  • I have a Bachelor of Education Degree from CMSU in Vocational Home Economics and Business Education, Certification in those areas as well as Elementary Education and a Master of Science Degree from CMSU in School Counseling.

What about my family?

My family has lived in the Holden, Odessa and Centerview area for the past 40+ years. I am a Holden graduate, my husband, Fred, a Warrensburg graduate. We live on the family farm near Columbus Missouri. My husband is a Maintenance worker in Kansas City and up until this next year I have been a school counselor.  Our children are Holden graduates as well as our daughter in law and our son in law a Crest Ridge graduate. Our son, Matt is a Mechanical Engineer and his wife and high school sweetheart, Vanessa, works in computer technology for a new firm in Kansas City. I am the happy “gammaw” to Tristan who starts Kindergarten this year in Pleasant Hill and Coretta who just joined us last month. Our daughter Liz is a High School Library Media Specialist and her husband, Jeremy, a computer specialist at UMKC. My family is very important to me.

What do I believe?

  • I believe we are all Americans, Missourians, NOT Democrats and Republicans. We are neighbors, friends, brothers and sisters.
  • I believe that education and knowledge is the most valuable tool available to us and we need to continue to learn and expand our knowledge in every aspect of our lives.
  • I believe in the Holy Bible and its teachings.
  • I believe in the ideals of the Constitution of the United States of America.

What do I think is important?

I have always been a counselor. Even prior to actually getting the degree, I was the one who friends went to and told their story to. I am a listener and a supporter. I have always had a calm nature and been able to see situations from each angle to help negotiate peaceful and equitable outcomes of conflicts and to encourage others to start new adventures and explore opportunities.  As I retire from the School segment I am actually expanding my reach to help those in my district and my state.

Important Policy Issues:

  • Universal healthcare
  • Ratifying the ERA in the State of Missouri to become the 38th state to do so and becoming the deciding state to put it in the Federal Constitution.
  • Full and consistent funding of public education
  • Making sure that the advances gained through the years of Union organization of fair wages, working conditions and hours is maintained whether you are union or not.
  • Supporting family farms
  • Re-evaluating infrastructure in rural areas, not just the larger cities who seem to use all of the budget." Connie Simmons, MWLC's endorsed candidate for Missouri House District 53.

MWLC Endorses Teri Hanna!

Teri_Hanna_Endorsement.png"I was born in Barton County and have lived in this area all my life so I know the issues that are a concern here.  We Missourians should not settle for anything less than:
• An exemplary education in a safe environment for our children, Missouri's future.
• Quality, affordable health care.
• A living wage for our workforce, where the working class isn't sold out in favor of corporations.
 
There are many issues that are important to me and the rest of my District.  Missourians deserve elected officials who represent the people they serve.  I'm Teri Hanna and I want to be that representative in District 127.

I am a mother of 3 daughters who blessed me with 8 grandchildren and now a great-granddaughter.

I was a customer service manager at Walmart, then worked as an office manager, scale clerk at a landfill and went from there to the USPS as a letter carrier/tech where I retired 3 years ago. I was temporarily raising 3 grandchildren at the time so I took about 8 months off and then returned part-times a waitress in a small local cafe like I did when I was younger.

I was a 4H leader, PTO member and helped with all school functions when my daughters were in school, I was a member of the ladies aux. of the Eagles Club but let my membership go after I took on the grandchildren due to school activities, work etc. because I didn't feel I was giving them enough of my time. When I see that I can help someone I do and when there is a problem to solve I try to do it and I don't back down from it!" - Teri Hanna, MWLC's endorsed candidate for Missouri House District 127.

MWLC Endorses Sara Michael!

Sara_Micheal_Endorsement.png"I am running as a Democratic candidate for the 60th District of the Missouri House of Representatives.  I am an attorney and have served the families of Jefferson City, Missouri since 1996.  I am the mother of two children who attend Helias Catholic High School and St. Peter Interparish School and a managing partner at the law firm of Carver & Michael, LLC.  

I have served on the Cole County Juvenile Advisory Board, Rape and Abuse Crisis Services Board, Executive Counsel of the Missouri Family Law Section, and am a past president of the Cole County Bar Association.  Currently, I serve as a public member of the Missouri State Committee of Marital & Family Therapists as well as on the St. Peter Interparish Home and School Association.

I have lived in Jefferson City for more than 20 years and have devoted my legal practice to assisting Jefferson City families through what many would consider the most stressful days a family can face, giving guidance and counsel to parents and always working hard to put the needs of children first.

I am running for the General Assembly because I have always believed that if you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem.  It is simply time that the government work for its citizens and I want to be the voice of those who have been overlooked and ignored, or even taken advantage of, for far too long.  The time has come to stand up and do my best to truly effectuate change.

I intend to fight for our children by protecting school funding, working to provide medical and mental health resources for our families, and protect our state from attacks against the working class with so-called “right to work” legislation that really only hurts Missouri working families at the benefit of those who already have more than enough." Sara Michael, MWLC's endorsed candidate for Missouri House District 60.
