Lee Ann Pitman for State Representative
Missouri House District 99
Why I Am Running For State Representative
As a lifelong resident of Missouri I know what it takes for our community to thrive. As your representative I will prioritize small businesses and jobs to help our local economy. I also believe in taking care of our senior citizens financially and by giving them the honor they are due as valuable and respected members of our society. As a Mother I will continue to fight for the best education for our children. I also believe in supporting those who protect and serve our community in the armed forces and emergency services.
Small Businesses and Jobs
Small businesses are the backbone of our state and local economies. Lee Ann understands that the role of government is not to create jobs but rather to foster an environment in which small business owners can thrive and grow. Lee Ann will work to lessen government regulations and restrictions on small businesses.
Our seniors are our most cherished community resource. They have worked to establish the communities we live in, worked their entire lives, and many of them have defended the freedoms we enjoy each day. They are the bridge to our past.
At the very least, we owe our seniors quality, affordable healthcare and the assurance that institutions set up to care for our loved ones provide the devoted care they deserve. Lee Ann has seen the best and worst of our healthcare system while caring for her parents and Is dedicated supporting our seniors in accessing the care they have earned.
As all parents do, Lee Ann has worked to provide her children with a better life than she has enjoyed. In her interactions with the education system, Lee Ann has learned that the system is filled with caring individuals who work each day to prepare our children for the future. Each of our children deserve access to a quality education that prepares them for the careers of tomorrow. Lee Ann will support ideas that move our education system forward to make sure that our children have every opportunity to succeed.
Veterans and Emergency Services
Every day we go about our lives enjoying many freedoms and taking for granted our safety. We owe that to those who have served and are currently serving in our military and to the many emergency services workers in our communities. Lee Ann will advocate for our veterans and protect the work of our emergency services workers.
