CANDIDATES FOR PRESIDENT

Name: Hillary Clinton Party: Democrat Website: www.hillaryclinton.com Facebook: www.facebook. com/hillaryclinton Twitter: @HillaryClinton Campaign Email: info@hillaryclinton.com Campaign Phone: (646) 854-1432 Campaign Address: Hillary for America, PO Box 5256; New York, NY 10185 Personal Statement: I’m running for President to make a difference in the lives of all Americans. I’ll build an economy that works for everyone, continue my fight for children and families, and work to keep our country safe. And I’ll unite Americans to take on all the challenges we face—because we’re stronger together. Top Three Goals: 1. Grow and strengthen our economy. 2. Curb the outsized influence of big money in American politics. 3. Ensure we have the partnerships to keep our country safe. What will you do to support a vibrant economy across the U.S.? My first priority will be to grow and strengthen our economy. I will invest in good-paying jobs, expand access to higher education, encourage companies to follow policies that put families first, and fight so that everyone pays their fair share. Every American deserves a good job, a successful career, and a productive life. Together, these efforts will work to make that a reality. What, if any, actions will you support to create a pathway to citizenship? In my first 100 days, I will introduce comprehensive immigration reform with a path to citizenship. An estimated nine million lawful permanent residents are eligible to become U.S. citizens. As President, I will work to expand fee waivers and enhance outreach, so that more of the working poor can assume the full rights and responsibilities of becoming U.S. citizens.

What should government do to provide an equitable, quality public education for all children pre-K through grade 12? Every child deserves a high-quality education. I will double our investments in Early Head Start programs and ensure every 4-year old has access to high-quality preschool. I will do more to support our teachers, modernize our classrooms, and support STEM programs so that all public school students can learn computer science. We must give children the foundation to succeed, from pre-K to grade 12. What actions would you support the U.S. undertake to protect its interests abroad? The U.S. needs to exercise leadership and shape global events rather than be shaped by them. So many of our interests—our security, our economy, and our fight against climate change—require cooperation with our friends and allies, and with countries we may agree with on some things, and disagree with on others. As President, I’ll ensure our country remains a source of leadership around the world. What kinds of policies will you pursue to promote social and racial justice for all Americans? Too many Americans still face discrimination and mistreatment. I will fight to break down barriers and build ladders of opportunity. We will reform our criminal justice system, protect transgender individuals, defend voting rights, fight environmental injustice, fight for comprehensive immigration reform, end the epidemic of gun violence, and ensure the citizens of Puerto Rico are treated equally.

Ave; New York, NY 10022 Personal Statement: The government of the US should be focused on serving the people of this great nation, not special interests. The government now rules rather than governs. The American people want their government back and together we will make America great again. Top Three Goals: Secure our nation by restoring our leadership in the world; restore economic growth thru tax, trade, immigration, & energy reform; restore Constitutional limits on government. What will you do to support a vibrant economy across the U.S.? I have proposed tax, trade, energy and immigration reforms that will bring trillions of dollars and millions of jobs back to the United States. Through immigration reform, we will restore wage growth and reduce the related fiscal burdens on state and local governments. These reforms will help lift wages and will create opportunities for millions of Americans to get back in the workforce. What, if any, actions will you support to create a pathway to citizenship? We must re-establish the rule of law in this country. Criminal illegal immigrants will be deported. No one should be given the gift of U.S. citizenship based on illegal behavior. What should government do to provide an equitable, quality public education for all children pre-K through grade 12? My administration will provide states with incentives to increase school choice options for parents and local school districts. Allowing the entrenched Washington education establishment and federal bureaucrats to leverage federal funds to dictate educational practices, curriculum and outcomes must be stopped. Control of K-12 education must be returned to parents and citizens locally. What actions would you support the U.S. undertake to protect its interests abroad? We are the leader of the free world - whether we like it or not - and we must ensure we seek partners willing to make sure our national interests are defended. We only gain this respect from both adversaries and allies by having a strong mili-

Vote continued from page 1 tary, being clear about defeating radical Islam, & stopping rogue nations from attacking/threatening our citizens, economic interests, resources and allies. What kinds of policies will you pursue to promote social and racial justice for all Americans? The best way to ensure social & racial justice is to return Constitutional limits on government & appoint Supreme Court Justices who will defend the Constitution, not rewrite it. The President must provide leadership & make sure the government works for the people. We must ensure low income & minority children learn to read at grade level & not trap them in failing schools based on zip code. N a m e : Gary Johnson Pa r t y : Libertarian We b s i t e : www.johnsonweld.com Facebook: www.facebook.com/govgaryjohnson/ Twitter @GovGaryJohnson Campaign Email: Info@ JohnsonWeld.com Campaign Phone: (801) 303-8922 Campaign Address: PO Box 4422 Salt Lake City, UT 84110 Personal Statement: I am Governor Gary Johnson and along with my running mate Governor William Weld we are honored to accept the invitation of the League of Women Voters to participate in their efforts to inform the voting American public of all options available to

them during this Presidential election year. Top Three Goals: Provide Congress a balanced budget within the first 100 days of office; Reduce (and in some cases eliminate) our military footprint abroad; Liberalize trade and economic activity. What will you do to support a vibrant economy across the U.S.? Submit to Congress a balanced budget to provide a template to stop unsustainable growth of the national debt, debt that weighs on employers, entrepreneurs and the economy. Support a simpler, fairer tax code that won’t penalize productivity or investment. Fight to provide certainty in spending, taxes, and regulation so employers, entrepreneurs and investors make decisions that put people to work. What, if any, actions will you support to create a pathway to citizenship? Ensure a pathway to citizenship for deserving immigrants by first establishing a way for non-criminal undocumented immigrants to achieve documented status. After that crucial first step, the pathway to citizenship will be the same as it is for all immigrants. No cutting the line. No unfair advantages. Just a legal status that allows immigrants to pursue the traditional path to becoming a citizen. What should government do to provide an equitable, quality public education for all children pre-K through grade 12? Education works best when decentralized. Since President Carter created the Dept. of Education, test scores have stagnated despite any new initiatives or spending programs. Parents and teachers make the best decisions for students, not bureaucrats at the DoE. Education is traditionally a state and

local responsibility, and should remain so for innovation, best practices and even competition. What actions would you support the U.S. undertake to protect its interests abroad? Above all, we must maintain a national defense that is second to none. Government’s first responsibility is to protect us from threats abroad. If attacked, we respond. Our greatest assets are economy and culture. Blue jeans and computers did more to win the Cold War than stockpiled warheads. I will pursue vigorous diplomacy based on our economic might, not idle threats and military interventions. What kinds of policies will you pursue to promote social and racial justice for all Americans? I would do everything in the Presidency’s power to end the militarization of the police. I would end the failed drug war, which unfairly targets communities of color. I would use the powers of the Federal Government to protect the civil liberties of all Americans, aggressively enforcing 14th Amendment protections. I would continue the work to help all Americans to achieve equality of opportunity.

Brooklyn, NY 11238 Personal Statement: After a career in clinical medicine, I am now practicing political medicine, running for President to help heal our ailing nation. Your vote for me sends a clear signal that you want a new, principled politics that puts people, planet and peace over profit. Top Three Goals: 1. Green job-creation to fight climate change. 2. A fair economy that eliminates unemployment 3. Justice, true democracy, and respect for all human beings. What will you do to support a vibrant economy across the U.S.? Eliminate unemployment by creating a job for every American who needs work. • Repeal NAFTA and other trade agreements that export our jobs overseas and create immigration surges. • Create 20 million green jobs to stimulate the economy improving our health by cleaning up our land, air, and water. • Protect consumers and small businesses from big banks and Wall Street predators. What, if any, actions will you support to create a pathway to citizenship? First, end the massive deportation schemes that have torn families apart. I would also end the so-called Secure Communities program that has led to abuse of both citizens and non-citizens. End the misguided free trade agreements and regime change wars that have forced people to emigrate for their own survival. Finally, provide a welcoming and legal path to citizenship for current immigrants. What should government do to provide an equitable, quality public education for all children pre-K through grade 12? 1) Protect our public schools from privatization schemes that will inevitably undermine the American dream of quality public education for all. 2) Increase federal funding of public schools to make sure all school districts have the financial resources they need to provide quality education. 3) Ensure that kids come to school ready to learn: healthy, nourished, and secure. What actions would you support the U.S. undertake to protect its interests abroad? Forge a new foreign policy based solidly on diplomacy, international law, respect for human rights, and consistent nonviolent support for demo-

cratic movements around the world. End the misguided policies of militarism that have produced terrorist organizations, refugee crises, failed states, and a bloated military that we can no longer afford. What kinds of policies will you pursue to promote social and racial justice for all Americans? My plan to end unemployment will transform the economic life of low income communities that are now struggling with unemployment rates two or three times the national average. Coupled with my commitment to quality public schools and community empowerment, we cannot just lessen racial disparity, but bring it to an end.

growth? Families are tired of struggling with stagnant wages, a broken health care system and a weak economy that has left far too many Missourians behind. Expanding American energy, making college more affordable, increasing manufacturing, cutting red tape and enhancing infrastructure will create better jobs and more opportunities for hard-working Missouri families. N a m e : Jonathan Dine Party: Libertarian Mailing Address: 6909 NW 77th Terr, Kansas City, MO 64152 Campaign website: www. vote4dine.com Incumbent: No What are the most important challenges facing the U.S. in foreign relations? I would work to end the current U.S. government policy of foreign intervention, including military and economic aid. I believe the role of the military is to provide a strong national defense, but the optimum word is defense not offense. As your Senator I will advocate a foreign policy of non-intervention, peace, and honest free trade as prescribed by America’s founders. What would you do to support economic and job growth? I believe it’s not the govt’s responsibility to create jobs. All it can do is get out of the way and foster an environment for job growth. Lower taxes; remove occupational licensing and burdensome red tape to start a business. With lower taxes, you could keep more of what you earn. It would be easier to start new businesses, build new homes, and fuel real economic growth.

Election officer to be on duty to receive complaints of election fraud, voting rights abuses Tammy Dickinson, U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced that Assistant U.S. Attorney Patrick D. Daly will lead the efforts of her office in connection with the Justice Department’s nationwide Election Day program for the Nov. 8 general elections. As the District Election Officer, Daly is responsible for overseeing the district’s handling of complaints of election fraud and voting rights abuses in consultation with Justice Department

headquarters in Washington, D.C. Daly will be on duty in this district while the polls are open order to respond to complaints of election fraud or voting rights abuses on Nov. 8 and to ensure that such complaints are directed to the appropriate authorities. He can be reached by the public at 816-426-3000. The FBI’s Kansas City Field Office will also have special agents available to receive allegations of election fraud, intimidation, suppres-

sion and other election abuses. The public can provide information regarding possible election crimes to the FBI Kansas City Field Office’s toll-free hotline 1-855-5272847 or kcpctip@ic.fbi.gov. The Department of Justice has an important role in deterring election fraud and discrimination at the polls, and combating these violations whenever and wherever they occur. The department’s long-standing Election Day program furthers these goals, and also

seeks to ensure public confidence in the integrity of the election process by providing local points of contact within the department for the public to report possible election fraud and voting rights violations while the polls are open on Election Day. Federal law protects against such crimes as intimidating or bribing voters, buying and selling votes, impersonating voters, altering vote tallies, stuffing ballot boxes and marking ballots for voters against their wishes or

without their input. It also contains special protections for the rights of voters and provides that they can vote free from acts that intimidate or harass them. For example, actions of persons designed to interrupt or intimidate voters at polling places by questioning or challenging them, or by photographing or videotaping them, under the pretext that these are actions to uncover illegal voting may violate federal voting rights law. Further, federal law protects the right

of voters to mark their own ballot or to be assisted by a person of their choice. Complaints about possible violations of the federal voting rights laws can be made directly to the Civil Rights Division’s Voting Section in Washington, D.C., by phone at 1-800-253-3931 or 202-307-2767, by fax at 202307-3961, by e-mail to voting.section@usdoj.gov or by complaint form at http:// www.justice.gov/crt/complaint/votintake/index.php.

State Treasurer to locate Missourians regarding unclaimed U. S. Savings Bonds Missouri State Treasurer Clint Zweifel is alerting Missourians to steps being to help return funds associated with the unclaimed bonds to their rightful owners. Many of these U.S. Savings Bonds came to the Treasurer as Unclaimed Property in abandoned safe deposit boxes. To see a detailed explanation of the types of savings bonds that are impacted and a list of bondholders whose

bonds were found in safe deposit boxes, visit treasurer. mo.gov/UnclaimedProperty/ SavingsBondsDefendantList. aspx. “My number one job as Treasurer is to act in the best financial interest of Missouri taxpayers,” Treasurer Zweifel said. “In taking steps to return lost or unclaimed U.S. Savings Bonds, I am working to ensure thousands of Missourians receive money

owed to them by the Federal Government. These savings bonds could come from savings, gifts, investments and more. We are doing all we can to ensure the money associated with them can be returned in a timely manner.” Since June of this year, Treasurer Zweifel has returned more than 400 savings bonds totaling nearly $52,000 to Missourians.

Terrorism is an obvious answer. Trade imbalances, illegal immigration and confusion among friends and enemies about which are which must also be addressed. The U.N. has increasingly become a tool of subversives, foreign and domestic, to undermine constitutional governance. We must build better relationships with all nations but end U.N. support and authority in the U.S. What would you do to support economic and job growth? Unfair trade is a major issue. Nations with no disposable income, hence no real market, that steal our intellectual property and allow cheap labor to invade our country must not enjoy free access to U.S. markets. We must demand respect for our borders and laborers. We shouldn’t allow corporations to move jobs overseas, then import products without penalty tariffs.

Preserve the right to own a gun for protection but require training for permits and ban assault weapons. What would you do to increase economic and job growth? A 35-hour work week beginning with state employees; re-employ laid off government workers. Rebuild low income communities with green jobs & employer incentives. To ensure part-timers receive benefits, begin Medicare4All & expand Social Security benefits. As prison, dirty energy & health insurance jobs are reduced; those workers must receive new employment at equal pay.

Congress needs to come together to develop a targeted, comprehensive plan to destroy ISIS and work together with our allies so our brave soldiers have a coherent strategy. What would you do to support economic and job growth? I will fight to close tax loopholes for companies that send jobs overseas and work to make sure our tax system provides targeted tax relief for small businesses and the middle class so working families can get ahead. We need to make sure the minimum wage is a livable wage, women earn equal pay for equal work and higher education is an affordable option for all.

funding. What would you do to increase economic and job growth? I would end government-run “economic development” programs wherein government gives money to favored corporations and instead eliminate the state income tax for businesses and individuals to benefit everyone. I would end state-mandated licensing requirements for businesses and other regulations on businesses and the emerging sharing and crowd-sourcing economy.

2001-2004; U.S representative, 2005-2012 Highest post-secondary education: J.D., University of Missouri-Columbia Incumbent: No What are your top three priorities for Missouri? Our primary investment as a state should be in education: early childhood, elementary, secondary and higher learning. Because a quality education is necessary for the future of our children and state, we must aggressively support the funding of better public schools for all our young people, wherever they live. Making higher education affordable is a high priority. What would you do to increase economic and job growth? As lieutenant governor and state Senate president, I’ll work to see that schools and transportation are given top legislative consideration. I will advocate sound development policies that focus on jobs, schools, health care, diversity and access to capital for small businesses. I oppose anti-union and workingfamily policies and all discrimination in our public square.

nor2016.com Highest post-secondary education: BBA Baylor University, business administration, entrepreneurship Incumbent: No What are your top three priorities for Missouri? Right-to-Work Solution: Unions can continue working undeterred, always keeping union jobs where they are now (grandfather). In 2017, only allow “new” firms to choose RTW. This satisfies both sides. Family: Let us create stronger families through economy, work ethic, commitment, and faith. Education: For our children, we must support our teachers and fully fund our schools. What would you do to increase economic and job growth? Workforce: Missouri’s greatest asset is her people. We can promote this, our central location, low cost of living, and small business incentive to draw firms here. Entrepreneurs: We can foster start-up business with colleges/existing business & fit education to career specificity with tuitional aid. Infrastructure: Let’s start new road/bridge repair for extra job creation.

To the Editor: “A library is like an island in the middle of a vast sea of ignorance, particularly if the library is very tall and the surrounding area has been flooded.”-Lemony Snickert In the midst of a sea of confusing unlicensed political confusion and turmoil please remember our local library, the Joe Herndon Branch of the Mid-Continent Public Library System. On November 8, after you have voted for multiple candidates, judges, and so many issues please remember to vote for Proposition L in support of our Raytown library and MidContinent. It is important. Our local library is used by numerous people: seniors, working adults, teenagers and many, oh so many children. Proposition L asks voters to approve an eight cent levy increase on your property tax assessment. The library has not asked for an increase for over 30 years. Not many local political subdivisions can make that claim. The increase on a $150,000 house is equivalent to about $27.00, the average price of a book. After nearly two generations, the system requires renovation and updating. If approved by voters, there will be improvements locally at our Joe Herndon Branch. There are good reasons for maintaining libraries. They are houses of learning -keepers of knowledge and information. There are books, magazines, newspapers, other periodicals, DVDs, other audio recordings, movies, music, lessons on most subjects, an entire vast array of digital access and hard copy resources. And reading and learn-

ing programs for children. What a marvelous opportunity and pleasant surprise for children and their families with all the interesting programs available for all of them. Think that libraries are a thing of the past. That they are archaic and not relevant. Think again. You would be wrong. Our libraries have adjusted to new technology and have more knowledge, information, education and entertainment opportunities than ever. Our library is popular. The parking lot is often full and inside it is crowded with people reading books, using computers, conducting research, listening to speakers and more. It is active. Our library is a significant contributing factor to our Democracy. Where a citizen may read for themselves and make up their own respective mind on the critical issues of the day. We need these good citizens who are critical and not drones and robots affected by the operant conditioning techniques of mass propaganda in its many forms. Let us use as libraries as free thinkers that are critical of canned thought and unclear solutions. Our library provides all of us the opportunity to pursue truth and not fall prey to the mass of rationalizations that are often poured upon us to dull our thoughts and creative abilities. Support your library on Tuesday, November 8. Help yourself and your neighbors! As Albert Einstein said,” The only just thing you have to learn, is the location of the library.”

The League of Women Voters has devoted almost 100 years to protecting the integrity of free and fair elections. We oppose Constitutional Amendment 6 on the November 8th ballot because it would put unnecessary obstacles in many voters’ way to the polls. If passed, it would: • Force citizens to present only certain types of federal or state-issued IDs to vote. In order to obtain one of these, the voter would have to present a birth certificate, marriage license, divorce decree, etc. which would not only be difficult and costly but, in some cases, downright impossible (think of the destruction of such records in a county office due to natural disasters). • Create barriers for over 220,000 Missouri voters, particularly seniors, people with disabilities, the work-

Jim Barnes Library Card Holder

ing poor, minority groups, and women. • Discourage voters from going to the polls because of the confusion surrounding which IDs are necessary in order to vote. • Eliminate some Missouri college students from the rolls because their current student IDs will no longer be valid. • Cost Missourians over $16 million and require additional bureaucracy. Amendment 6 will remove the present Missouri Constitution’s protection of the right to vote when no problem of voter impersonation has ever been demonstrated in Missouri. Let’s protect the right for all to have equal access to free and fair elections. Our right to vote is the cornerstone of our democracy. Elaine Blodgett, State President LWV - Missouri

Jason Offutt It’s easy to pick on Millennials (people 18 to 34). They started the hipster movement after all, which is fun for absolutely no one, not even the hipsters. Every hipster I see looks miserable. If you have no idea what a hipster is, I envy you. Hipsters are young people who dress like they’re in a 1930s alternate dimension where everyone seems like they want to get beaten up. They use things like typewriters, grow lumberjack beards but don’t adopt the lumberjack lifestyle (mainly because lumberjacks are employed) and for the most part live at home with their mothers. For the first time in the history of self-respect a greater percentage of young people live at home with Mom and Dad (32.1 percent) than in any of the traditionally accepted living arrangements like with a roommate, a spouse, a cellmate, or under a bridge. But this isn’t about the things Millennials do wrong, this is about the things Millennials do right. Like not eat Big Macs. Other than me (once) I’ve never seen anyone order a Big Mac. Seriously. Never. There must be some sub culture of people who love Big Macs or they wouldn’t exist. These people probably have Big Mac and KFC Double Down conventions in places where there’s nothing better to do than eat things that could block a colon. You know, in cities like Bratislava, Slovakia, and Chula Vista, California (ranked the most boring city in the U.S. by Finances Online). The Big Mac (two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun) was in-

vented in Pittsburgh in 1967. McDonald’s Restaurants started selling it nationwide in 1968. But as legendary as these sandwiches are, a recent study showed only one in five Millennials have eaten the most well known sandwich in America. Good for them. The Big Mac is the culinary equivalent of the Pontiac Aztek or a shady date. Sure, they may be fun, but you don’t want anyone to see you together. And if Millennials are about anything, it’s style. Millennials popularized the man bun (where the use of the word “man” is questionable), the gluten-free diet (which is important for people with celiac disease but irrelevant – although stylish – for anyone else), hornedrimmed glasses (sailors issued these call them Birth Control Glasses for obvious reasons) and not buying houses or cars. I’m picking on Millennials again. Sorry. A study (yes, an actual study) showed Millennials probably don’t eat Big Macs because they’d rather either eat higher quality burgers at trendy restaurants or convenience store food (don’t try to make sense of that). Millennials also did a great public service by bringing Pabst Blue Ribbon beer back from impending extinction. By choosing to ironically drink a beer that’s company policy is not to advertise, Millennials took PBR sales, which in 2001 were 90 percent less than its high in 1977, up 20.3 percent by 2009. Today Americans drink 200 percent more PBR than they did in 2004. So, Millennials are killing the Big Mac and saving PBR. I have no idea why people think they don’t do anything Jason Offutt’s latest book, “Across a Corn-Swept Land: An epic beer run through the Upper Midwest,” is available at amazon.com. A native of Missouri, Jason currently teaches journalism at Northwest Missouri State University and has earned many humor writer awards throughout his career.

Secretary of State

N a m e : John (Jay) Ashcroft Party: Republican We b s i t e : ashcroftformissouri. com Elected Offices

Public Held: None Highest post-secondary education: M.A., University of Missouri-Rolla, engineering management; J.D., St. Louis University Incumbent: No What are your top three priorities for Missouri? As secretary of state, I will focus on protecting the integrity of our elections, making it easier to create a business and fostering an environment where businesses can grow and jobs will be created. I will ensure our elections are fair, work to protect our elections, streamline the process for creating a business and stop unconstitutional jobkilling regulations. What would you do to improve the office you seek? I will advocate for commonsense reforms to protect our elections, like a photo voter ID law. I will continue working tirelessly to ensure our elections are free from fraud, clean voter rolls, advocate for laws that foster election security and create a spirit of cooperation between our local election authorities and the secretary of state. N a m e : Chris Morrill Party: Libertarian We b s i t e : vote.chrismorrill.com Public Elected Offices Held: none Highest post-secondary education: B.S., Southeast Missouri State University, education Incumbent: No What are your top three priorities for Missouri? 1. Align the duties of the secretary of state’s office with those of the Missouri Department of Insurance, Financial Institutions and Professional Registration. 2. Work to make voting easier, not harder, while vigorously pursuing known voter fraud cases. 3. Advocate paper ballots until a more reliable (preferably opensource) electronic system can be implemented. What would you do to improve the office you seek? 1. Streamline and modernize as much of the election process and state archives as possible. 2. Make the candidate filing process easier. 3. Recuse myself from any election disputes involving Libertarian candidates. N a m e : Robin Smith Pa r t y : Democrat W e b site: RobinSmith2016. com Elected Offices

Protect voters’ rights: I will oppose any legislation which would stop the elderly, disabled, minorities, college students and the financially challenged from voting. 3. Increase access to the secretary of state. What would you do to improve the office you seek?

State Treasurer

N a m e : Judy Baker Pa r t y : Democrat We b s i t e : www.showmebaker.com Public Elected Offices Held: State representative, 2005-2008 Highest post-secondary education: M.H.A., University of Missouri-Columbia, health administration Incumbent: No What are your top three priorities for Missouri? In addition to responsible oversight of the taxpayers’ money, my priorities as state treasurer are: 1. help people build assets build lives through expanding the college savings program through providing children’s savings accounts along with curriculum for improved financial life skills. 2. expand use of low-interest loans to promote sustainable farm-to-fork initiatives. What would you do to improve the office you seek? 1. Improve the ease of claiming unclaimed property by leveraging technology to allow the database to be checked when renewing one’s driver’s license. 2. Provide more transparency through an enhanced report card for the office in order that the public has access to information that is easy to understand. N a m e : Carol Hexem Pa r t y : Green We b s i t e : www.carolhexem2016. com Highest post-secondary education: B.S.,University of Missouri St. Louis, education Incumbent: No What are your top three priorities for Missouri? My priorities as Treasurer will be to make decisions based on the best interest of the citizens of Missouri, not corporate campaign donors. This includes transparency and getting the best return on investments without sacrificing safety. I will create an ombudsman’s office that will advise student borrowers and represent their concerns to the legislature. What would you do to improve the office you seek? While serving on the governing board of the Missouri Housing Commission, I will fight for better options for low-income housing. Missouri ranks 31st for homelessness, of this single mothers with children under 5 make up the majority. In Missouri there are over 27,000 children experiencing homelessness at some point during the year. I will work to change this situation. N a m e : Sean O’Toole Party: Libertarian We b s i t e : otoole4mo. com Highest post-secondary education: B.A. Hamline University, business finance Incumbent: No What are your top three priorities for Missouri? Missouri shares borders with eight states competing for jobs and economic growth. Rather than poaching outof-state businesses with negotiated incentives, we should aim to make our state the most attractive place to be for all businesses and individuals. A good start in this regard would be an end to the state income tax and an end to business and occupational licensing. What would you do to improve the office you seek? The state’s Linked Deposit Program -- managed by the State Treasurer’s office -- should be eliminated. Subsidized loans to politically connected businesses at the expense of their competitors is bad for Missouri and disruptive to the marketplace. Businesses grow strong not by taking handouts but, rather, by creating useful products and serving their customers’ needs. N a m e : Eric Schmitt Pa r t y : Republican W e b site: www. SchmittForMissouri. com

5 Public Elected Offices Held: Alderman, Glendale, 2005-2008; state senator, 2009-present Highest post-secondary education: J.D., St. Louis University Incumbent: No What are your top three priorities for Missouri? 1. Leverage the treasurer’s office as a platform to spread the message that lower taxes and less government will grow our economy. 2. Rein in out-of-control government regulation and provide more transparency for taxpayers so they know how their money is being spent. 3. Ensure the state invests in Missouri and Main Street, not Wall Street. What would you do to improve the office you seek? I will work every day to make the treasurer’s office more responsive to taxpayers and instill a transparent, fiscally responsible approach to managing the state tax dollars they send to Jefferson City. Our government can better serve the people with added transparency and I intend to publish all government spending to bring light to how government is operating.

Attorney General

N a m e : Josh Hawley Party: Republican We b s i t e : joshhawley. com Public Elected Offices Held: None Highest post-secondary education: J.D., Yale University Incumbent: No What are your top three priorities for Missouri? 1. Fight federal overreach. I will be a new kind of attorney general by transforming the office into a national leader in the fight against federal overreach and job killing regulations. 2. Uphold the rule of law. My office will defend the rule of law from all who threaten it. 3. Clean up Jefferson City and get our government working again for the people of Missouri. What would you do to improve the office you seek? Jefferson City politicians have delivered failure and embarrassment, trading favors with special interests rather than standing up for our liberties. I will create units in the office dedicated to stopping public corruption and fighting federal overreach. And plaintiffs’ firms will not get rich on taxpayer money providing legal services the office exists to perform. Name: Teresa Hensley Pa r t y : Democrat We b s i t e : w w w . Te r e saHensley. com Public Elected Offices Held: Prosecutor, Cass County, 2005-2010 Highest post-secondary education: J.D., University of Missouri-Kansas City Incumbent: No What are your top three priorities for Missouri? Work with organizations around the state to seek best practices in handling sexual assault, domestic violence and child sex abuse cases. Do training with officials and staff at every level to ensure and understand the significance of the Sunshine Law. Make alternative driving-whileintoxicated, drug, mental health and veterans courts available in all counties and circuits. What would you do to improve the office you seek? The next attorney general has the responsibility to bring together opposing groups to address the issues outlined by the Ferguson Commission. Municipal courts, police training and shootings, affordable housing, public education and job opportunities should be addressed by a task force to seek solutions. My office would bring those groups to the table.

Statewide Initiatives Constitutional Amendment 1

Simple majority required. Ballot wording: Shall Missouri continue for 10 years the one-tenth of one percent sales/use tax that is used for soil and water conservation and for state parks and historic sites, and resubmit this tax to the voters for approval in 10 years? The measure continues and does not increase the existing sales and use tax of one-tenth of one percent for 10 years. The measure would continue to generate approximately $90 million annually for soil and water conservation and operation of the state park system Summary: This tax was established in 1984. If the proposition is passed, the tax would stay in effect 10 more years. Half of the revenue helps fund state parks and historic sites and half supports soil and water preservation programs. LWV ENDORSES THIS AMENDMENT Upon voter approval, Amendment 1 would renew the existing sales and use tax of 0.1 percent for 10 years. The revenue goes toward conservation efforts designed to “continue to generate approximately $90 million annually for soil and water conservation and operation of the state park system and historic sites. It was automatically referred to the ballot which must be reapproved by the voters every 10 years. Pros: This legislation has strong support from both parties and both urban and rural areas. Conservation programs would be significantly cut back if it were not passed. Cons: There is no organized opposition. Those opposed do not like taxes.

Constitutional Amendment 2

Simple majority required. Ballot wording: Shall the Missouri Constitution be amended to: establish limits on campaign contributions by individuals or entities to political parties, political committees, or committees to elect candidates for state or judicial office; prohibit individuals and entities from intentionally concealing the source of such contributions; require corporations or labor organizations to meet certain requirements in order to make such contributions; and provide a complaint process and penalties for any violations of this amendment? It is estimated this proposal will increase state government costs by at least $118,000 annually and have an unknown change in costs for local governmental entities. Any po-

tential impact to revenues for state and local governmental entities is unknown. Summary: The measure, which was placed on the ballot through an initiative petition campaign, would bar donors from giving more than $2,600 to a candidate for the Legislature, six statewide elective offices and other offices and from giving more than $25,000 to a political party. The measure would not apply to campaigns for the U.S. Senate and U.S. House. The measure also would bar direct campaign donations by corporations and unions but would allow donations by committees funded by corporate employees or union members. The measure also would attempt to ban the current practice of funneling money through different committees to hide the source of the contributions. Also prohibited would be contributions by foreign interests and companies not legally authorized to do business in Missouri. Supporters say the amendment would improve campaigns by setting donation limits that can’t be rewritten by the Legislature. Some critics say the measure doesn’t go far enough in limiting donations. Other opponents say it would unfairly limit some classes of businesses and associations from giving money to campaigns. Other critics contend that limiting contributions amounts to limiting free speech. LWV ENDORSES THIS AMENDMENT This proposed constitutional amendment was put on the ballot by the initiative petition method, whereby sufficient signatures of voters on petitions were certified by the Secretary of State’s office to qualify for the ballot. This proposal would establish limits on campaign contributions by individuals or entities to political parties, political committees, or committees to elect candidates for state or judicial office. It prohibits individuals and entities from intentionally concealing the source of such contributions, requires corporations or labor organizations to meet certain requirements in order to make such contributions, and provides a complaint process and penalties for any violations of the amendment. Pros: This amendment is probably the only way to enact contribution limits that then cannot be overturned by the legislature. It is important that Missouri do something about campaign contributions and this is a start. Cons: Some groups say that this does not go far enough to control campaign finance problems.

Constitutional Amendment 3

Simple majority required. Ballot wording: Shall the Missouri Constitution be amended to: increase taxes on cigarettes each year through 2020, at which point this additional tax will total 60 cents per pack of 20; create a fee paid by cigarette wholesalers of 67 cents per pack of 20 on certain cigarettes, which fee shall increase annually; and deposit funds generated by these taxes and fees into a newly established Early Childhood Health and Education Trust Fund? When cigarette tax increases are fully implemented, estimated additional revenue to state government is $263 million to $374 million annually, with limited estimated implementation costs. The revenue will fund only programs and services allowed by the proposal. The fiscal impact to local governmental entities is unknown. Summary: The measure would increase the tax on a pack of cigarettes by 60 cents - to 77 cents from 17 cents. This would occur in 15-centa-year increments over the next four years. The measure also would require smaller off-brand cigarette wholesalers to pay an extra fee of 67 cents a pack - amounting to a total tax hike of $1.27 a pack for such brands. The proposal, which got on the ballot through an initiative petition campaign, would generate $263 million to $374 million a year for early childhood education programs and smoking cessation programs aimed at young people and pregnant women. Proponents say the programs would improve public health and lead to lower health care costs. Critics complain that private and parochial schools could get some of the tax money and that an appointed commission would distribute the money. A competing cigarette tax measure - Proposition A also is on the ballot. If both pass, the Missouri secretary of state’s office says the courts likely would decide which would take effect. LWV TAKES NO POSITION ON THIS AMENDMENT This measure was put on the ballot by initiative petition, signed by a sufficient number of voters. It would increase the taxes on a pack of cigarettes from 17 cents to 77 cents by 15 cent increments until 2020. It would also impose a fee on wholesalers of 67cents per pack on cigarettes produced by a “non-participating manufacturer” (in other words, the smaller cigarette manufac-

turers who do not currently participate in an earlier lawsuit settlement. At least 75% of the revenue would be devoted to increasing access to early childhood education programs. Around 10 % would go toward grants for Missouri health care facilities, and approximately 5% would be devoted to smoking prevention programs. There is also a competing tobacco sales tax measure; if both pass, the one with the most votes becomes law. Pros: Those who support this amendment say that early childhood education is very important and that it is not adequately funded. Cons: The money generated by the tax could be used to support private and parochial schools, violating the principle of “public money for public schools.” In addition, opponents say the measure lacks strong oversight and places all decisions in the hands of an unelected commission. Some health care groups are opposed as they say it could interfere with stem cell research.

Constitutional Amendment 4

Simple majority required. Ballot wording: Shall the Missouri Constitution be amended to prohibit a new state or local sales/use or other similar tax on any service or transaction that was not subject to a sales/use or similar tax as of January 1, 2015? Potential costs to state and local governmental entities are unknown, but could be significant. The proposal’s passage would impact governmental entities’ ability to revise their tax structures. State and local governments expect no savings from this proposal. Summary: The measure would prohibit a new state sales or use tax on any service or activity that wasn’t taxed in that way as of January of last year. Proponents, including the Missouri Association of Realtors, want to block efforts in the Legislature to impose taxes on professional services. The measure got on the ballot through an initiative petition campaign. Opponents say the measure would keep the Legislature from adjusting to the changing economy and jeopardize its ability to fund services. LWV OPPOSES THIS AMENDMENT This amendment was put on the ballot by initiative petition. It would prohibit a new state sales or use tax on any service or activity that was not subject to a sales or use tax as of January 1, 2015. Pros: Supporters (including the Missouri Association of Realtors) want to prohibit taxes on professional services. Cons: This proposal would impact a governmental entity’s ability to revise their tax structures. Putting such in the constitution would not be a “good gov-

T h e

ernment” policy. It could possibly cost the state a significant source of revenue in the future, as public spending for services tends to rise more than the public spending for products.

Constitutional Amendment 6

Simple majority required. Ballot wording: Shall the Constitution of Missouri be amended to state that voters may be required by law, which may be subject to exception, to verify one’s identity, citizenship, and residence by presenting identification that may include valid government-issued photo identification? The proposed amendment will result in no costs or savings because any potential costs would be due to the enactment of a general law allowed by this proposal. If such a general law is enacted, the potential costs to state and local governments is unknown, but could exceed $2.1 million annually. LWV OPPOSES THIS AMENDMENT This amendment was put on the ballot by the Missouri legislature since earlier attempts to mandate a state-issued photo ID for voting was declared unconstitutional in 2006. This proposal empowers the state government to require the presentation of only certain federal or stateissued voter ID at public elections. Pros: Supporters say that this would prevent voter fraud. Cons: Opponents say that voter fraud does not exist and that approximately 230,000 Missourians would be disenfranchised by this amendment. In addition, it would cost the state approximately $17 million over three years to implement.

Proposition A

Simple majority required. Ballot wording: Shall Missouri law be amended to: increase taxes on cigarettes in 2017, 2019, and 2021, at which point this additional tax will total 23 cents per pack of 20; increase the tax paid by sellers on other tobacco products by 5 percent of manufacturer’s invoice price; use funds generated by these taxes exclusively to fund transportation infrastructure projects; and repeal these taxes if a measure to increase any tax or fee on cigarettes or other tobacco products is certified to appear on any local or statewide ballot? State government revenue will increase by approximately $95 million to $103 million annually when cigarette and tobacco tax increases are fully implemented, with the new revenue earmarked for transportation infrastructure. Local government revenues could decrease approximately $3 million annually due to decreased cigarette and tobacco sales. Summary: The measure would gradually increase the tax on a pack of cigarettes

S e v e n T h

by 23 cents between 2017 and 2021 - to 40 cents from 17 cents. The measure also would impose an additional tax on other tobacco products equal to five percent of the manufacturer’s invoice price. When fully implemented, the tax hikes would generate $95 million to $103 million a year for transportation infrastructure projects. The measure also says these new taxes would be repealed if any other proposed tax or fee increase on cigarettes or other tobacco products is certified to appear on a statewide or local ballot. The measure, which got on the ballot through an initiative petition campaign, is an alternative to a higher cigarette tax increase contained in Constitutional Amendment 3 also on the Nov. 8 ballot. If both measures pass, the Missouri secretary of state’s office says the courts likely would decide which would become law. Opponents complain that the measure would not change what they contend is unfair allocation of state road funds and that trucking firms would not pay more to help finance road repairs. LWV OPPOSES THIS AMENDMENT This measure was put on the ballot by initiative petition. It would increase the current tax of 17 cents per pack of cigarettes by 2 cents every 2 years until 2021 when the total tax would reach 23 cents. It would also tax noncigarette tobacco products 5% of the manufacturer’s invoice price, paid by the seller. Tax revenue would be used to fund transportation infrastructure projects. Additionally, passage of this measure would repeal these taxes if a measure to increase any tax or fee on cigarettes or other tobacco products is certified to appear on any local or statewide ballot. Pros: Supporters say that this proposition should pass to defeat the larger tax increase in Amendment 3. Cons: This would tie the hands of future legislatures to pass fair tax policies.

Spinach & cheese stuffed chicken breasts

By Jacqui Duran Our family dinner table deserves delicious food. Food that we can have a conversation over. We can share our day over, we can talk about things important to us, and take advantage of our time together. All around the world with so many different cultures, traditions, and lifestyles … one thing we all have in common is the family meal. The family dinner table needs to be a priority. Some of my fondest mem-

Spinach & Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts ories growing up was at the dinner table. The rule in my house: You cannot leave the table until all your dinner is

done. As a child facing lima beans on my plate, this rule was horrifying. I sit here today to tell you that I survived

those lima beans. I even survived the green beans that I used to despise. Kids, there is hope! Nonetheless, those dinners with my younger brother, my mom, and my dad are some of the strongest memories I have. This recipe combines everything that reminds me of those family dinners. The veggies snuck in, the healthy chicken, and the delicious taste of a home cooked meal. Let’s dig in! • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, split in half • Bread crumbs This is the same filling used in last week’s column about my stuffed mushrooms recipe. When you make this filling make extra so you create a second meal! Here’s the filling: • 1 package frozen spinach, thawed and drained • 1 package cream cheese,

softened • 1 package of mushroom stems, diced finely • 3 cloves of garlic, diced finely • Salt and pepper, to taste • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes • 1 small handful shredded cheddar cheese To prepare the filling, sauté the diced mushroom stems, garlic, salt, pepper, and Worcestershire sauce until cooked thoroughly. Add this mixture to the softened cream cheese and thawed spinach. Combine with the shredded cheese. Cut through the middle of your chicken breasts to split flat. Pound out thinly. Spoon in your filling and wrap the chicken breasts around, and secure the ends with toothpicks. Take your stuffed

chicken and coat in a light layer of bread crumbs. I used my grill pan and cooked on all sides until the chicken is cooked completely through. Serve up with your favorite side salad and you have a fully balanced meal. You can substitute thin steak or even thinly sliced pork chops instead of chicken for a completely different flavor! Feel great when you serve this meal and make sure to gather the family around your table to create memories. Your family will thank you. Jacqui Duran lives in Raytown, Missouri with her husband and three children. Jacqui shares her passion for food and cooking on Facebook at www. facebook.com/homefordinner. mom and on her blog at http:// executivechefmom.blogspot. com. Follow her on Instagram @ jduran1313.
