John Kiehne for State Representative

Missouri State House candidate John Kiehne was born and raised in St. Charles, Mo., has traveled extensively as a professional musician and lived in Boston, Mass. for 10 years. John and his wife Michelle have 4 now-grown children, one grandchild (great-niece actually) and 2 more on the way. As a foster parent and advocate for 11 years John has fought for at-risk children to receive the services and supports that they require.

John believes that by focusing on improving our schools and access to post-secondary education, creating better-paying jobs and encouraging new businesses and cutting-edge industries and by making quality, affordable Healthcare available to ALL Missouri residents we can make our State more peaceful, healthy and prosperous.

John believes that the people of Missouri deserve better representation in our State Legislature and he wants to make Missouri a destination- not just a flyover state. His goal is to make our state a great place to live, work and play for all our citizens- rich and poor, young and old.

Here’s a very recent interview (10/23/2018) with John Kiehne on KTUI radio in Sullivan, MO. In this segment he discusses a number of issues that he’s focusing on in his State Senate campaign including Healthcare, Jobs and Education.

This is his last last KTUI inteview before the General Election.

Thanks so much to KTUI for giving John the opportunity to introduce himself to Senate District 26 voters and discuss the issues!

John Kiehne will support hard-working Missourians and reject any and all attempts to lower workers’ wages, reduce their benefits and diminish workplace protections.


John Kiehne will work to reform our Healthcare system to make it more affordable and accessible for all Missouri residents. By accepting Medicaid Expansion we can help many uninsured residents that drain Missouri's resources while saving our failing rural hospitals. By re-instituting single-payer eligibility for the MORx Program we can help 66,000 Mo. senior citizens to afford critical prescription medications.


Pollution in the form of dumping and storing of toxic waste, the byproducts of Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations, radioactive waste and so forth has had and continues to have a very negative effect on the health and welfare of citizens all over the St. Louis area and beyond. We must do more to protect our soil, water and air from being poisoned by reckless corporate interests.

John Kiehne is Pro-Labor

If elected I will support Missouri's workers and reject attempts to lower wages, weaken benefits or eliminate workplace protections. I will fight to help get our workers better-paying jobs, encourage new business and new industries and work to revitalize our struggling rural communities. I oppose measures such as Right to Work, repealing the Prevailing Wage, Worker's Comp reforms and so forth that hurt workers.


By working to improve our job market and by directing more resources towards struggling schools we can develop a new generation that can pursue careers in Healthcare, Education, Engineering, the Skilled Trades and so forth. We must provide our children with a solid academic background in order for them to be successful, functional and independent adults.


Great campaigns are won by motivated, dedicated volunteers. Please sign up to help John Kiehne to become the next State Representative for Missouri's 109th District! There are a wide variety of roles to be filled so we're sure that we can find a place for you.


Running for office isn't free and isn't even cheap. John doesn't take money from shadowy PAC's or special interests so he is dependent on contributions from concerned voters that want a better community, state and country to help him to buy printed goods, pay production costs for content creation and spend time engaging voters, businesses and organizations in House District 109 and around the state of Missouri. Teamwork truly makes the dream work. Could you please help John to be a voice for Missouri voters in Jefferson City?
