Grant Local Control of the KCPD
Now more than ever it is evident that we must fight for local control of the KCPD. Kansas City in 2020 is much different than the Kansas City of the 1930s – when local control was taken away from us. Greg will make it a priority to fairly implement control with input from all corners of our city. Jefferson City must stop holding back the potential of our great city.
Expand Affordable Healthcare
On August 4th, Missourians have two opportunities to improve healthcare in our state. By voting Yes on 2 and expanding Medicaid we will bring in more than one billion of our tax dollars, keep hospitals from closing, protect frontline healthcare jobs, and expand healthcare to hundreds of thousands of our citizens. Then, by electing Greg Razer, Kansas City will have a state senator who prioritizes the implementation of Medicaid Expansion. Greg will ensure that leadership in Jefferson City does not fumble the serious next steps that we must take in order to better the healthcare of all Missourians.
Reduce Gun Violence
Gun violence is an epidemic in our state and our nation. Whether it be gun violence on our streets, from a domestic abuser, or a random act of violence, we must find a way to come together and tackle this problem. Greg has stood firm in the House in support of reasonable, common sense gun legislation, and he will continue to do the same as our Senator.
Invest in Education
Missouri has been defunding education for decades and Greg knows that it is time that we thoroughly alter our budget priorities as a state. That must include a stronger focus on our young people through both K-12 and higher education at all levels. Investment in projects that can help spur development from fields as seemingly diverse as science, technology, agriculture, transportation, infrastructure, and the arts.
Protect LGBT Rights
As one of only a handful of openly LGBT elected officials in Missouri, Greg knows firsthand the importance of passing the Missouri Non-Discrimination Act (MONA). The fact that someone in our state can still legally be fired from a job, kicked out of an apartment, or denied food at a restaurant simply because of who they love is unacceptable. We have made great progress on this issue in the House of Representatives. With your help, Greg looks forward to passing MONA in the State Senate.
