JOHN KIEHNE IS PRO LABOR
John will stand up for hard-working Missourians and always advocate for better-paying jobs and the opportunity to earn a living wage. He will also oppose predatory and discriminatory policies that might harm Missouri workers. Missouri's State workers- including teachers- are some of the lowest-paid in the U.S. and deserve a competitive wage.
JOHN KIEHNE WANTS TO REFORM HEALTHCARE
The high cost and challenging access to Healthcare in America creates an environment where many Americans have gone bankrupt because they got sick while many others have suffered and died needlessly due to lack of access to quality, affordable Healthcare. We must successfully implement Medicaid Expansion to provide Healthcare coverage for the poor, re-institute the MoRx program for dual-eligible seniors, codify protections for those with pre-existing conditions (including 150,000 Missourians who have tested positive for COVID-19), get prescription drug costs under control, reform Missouri's dysfunctional Medicaid system, and much more. Healthy citizens are more productive and more peaceful. Investing in the health and well-being of Missourians will yield an incalculable return on investment in the future.
JOHN KIEHNE WANTS TO ADDRESS WASTE AND DYSFUNCTION
As a foster provider and advocate John had to endure endless roadblocks in his efforts to connect at-risk children to much-needed services. Year after year of meetings and plans that seemed to result in little action or progress motivated him to start looking up the ladder to administrators and supervisors for answers and solutions for the challenges that he was facing in trying to adequately address challenges with the children whom he was responsible for. He discovered over time that the problem was often a broken, underfunded, overworked, and dysfunctional system that rewards nearly no one while also underserving many whom the system is set up to protect. Government waste and lack of effectiveness and efficiency is nothing new but John is committed to taking the time and energy to address critical issues that have immediate effects on Missouri residents.
JOHN KIEHNE IS PRO EDUCATION
John's campaign is endorsed by the MSTA, MNEA, the Missouri Association of Elementary Principals, the Missouri Association of Secondary Principals, the Missouri Association of School Administrators and the MO/KS SEIU. He will stand up for our schools, educators, staff, and students so that we can have the best public schools possible.
JOHN KIEHNE WANTS TO HELP CREATE GOOD-PAYING JOBS
50% of Americans work a low-wage job and nearly half of Americans have no savings or investments. Many working Missourians are working low-wage jobs in areas where employment that offers a living wage may be geographically distant and often difficult to find and acquire. John believes that the Missouri State Legislature should create and support policies that encourage entrepreneurship, job and skills training, rebuilding our rural and urban communities that have long-suffered from economic challenges and helping to support and expand the middle class in every community in the State of Missouri regardless of zip code. We must commit to facilitating pursuit of the American Dream so that we can, over time, raise the tide for each and every Missouri family. We should work to increase wages and benefits- not lower them. Support the small businesses that make up over 99% of Missouri businesses, and make Missouri a prime destination- not just a flyover State. We're the Show Me State- and we can do this.
JOHN KIEHNE IS PRO JUSTICE REFORM
Missouri and America suffer from an often unjust, dysfunctional and ineffective Justice System. While there are many hard-working and well-meaning judges, prosecutors, and dedicated law enforcement officers who dedicate their lives to keeping the peace and enforcing our laws many are overworked, underpaid, and lacking in structural support to make them able to be effective and consistent in the application of their duties. Punitive measures are often not the answer to reducing crime while addressing the root causes of crime is much more effective and long-lasting. We need to create a structure in which our laws help courts, law enforcement, and other entities to have a more comprehensive approach to making our communities more safe, peaceful, and prosperous.

TEAMKIEHNE'S GRASSROOTS CAMPAIGN IS SUPPORTED BY MANY INDIVIDUAL DONORS

HARRY S TRUMAN HAD A REPUBLICAN PROBLEM IN 1948

“Republicans approve of the American farmer, but they are willing to help him go broke. They stand four-square for the American home—but not for housing. They are strong for labor—but they are stronger for restricting labor's rights. They favor minimum wage—the smaller the minimum wage the better. They endorse educational opportunity for all—but they won't spend money for teachers or for schools. They think modern medical care and hospitals are fine—for people who can afford them … They think American standard of living is a fine thing—so long as it doesn't spread to all the people. And they admire the Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it." — Harry S. Truman, October 13, 1948, St. Paul, Minnesota, Radio Broadcast
