Today, Missouri State Representative Maggie Nurrenbern, elected to represent House District 15 in 2020, announces her campaign for State Senate District 17.
“I have always been proud to call Northland home and know that we need leaders who rise up as a voice of moderation, bring people together and actually drive results that make a positive difference to our community. That’s exactly what I’ve been doing as a State Representative, working across the aisle, working to deliver real solutions and investments in education, infrastructure and healthcare,” he said State Representative Maggie Nurrenbern.
“I am now running for State Senate because as a mom of three, a former local public school teacher, and a dedicated community volunteer, I have a renewed purpose to fight for a great public education for every child in our state, create more economic opportunity, finally expanding access to affordable health care and keeping our families safe. By working together, I know we can make Northland an even better place to live and raise a family.”
As a member of the House Budget Committee, State Representative Nurrenbern’s bipartisan record of achievements includes allocating $21.8 million to teacher pay increases in the career program and securing 8, $7 million for the safety and security of state schools serving students with disabilities. She also helped pass bipartisan plans to raise literacy and fully fund transportation for public schools.
Local leaders are supporting Rep. Nurrenbern’s campaign for Senate District 17:
● State Senator Lauren Arthur: “It has been an honor to represent Clay County in the State Senate since 2018. Maggie exemplifies the best of Northland. She is a fearless fighter for her constituents and a tireless advocate for students, families and neighbors. I know you will not only focus on the real issues that matter to Northerners, but you will also get results. This is especially important as extremists in the state legislature push divisive and harmful policies that harm our children and undermine public education. I couldn’t be more proud to endorse Maggie for State Senate.
● Western Clay County Commissioner Jon Carpenter: “State Representative Maggie Nurrenbern’s experience as a dedicated community volunteer and proven track record of working with both parties to bring home significant investments in Clay County has been instrumental in improving our infrastructure and helping small businesses. I am confident Maggie will continue to deliver real results in the State Senate and I am proud to have her back.”
● Former Deputy Attorney General Audrey Danner, who is rolling out a new CAPcalled Northland Forward: “As a mom and a Northlander, I’m thrilled to support MaggieNurrenbern’s campaign for state senate. Maggie will be a strong voice to improve public education, keep us safe, and find solutions to the biggest problems facing our community. That’s why I’m launching Northland Forward PAC. I want to continue to build on Maggie’s grassroots support and make sure Maggie gets elected to the state senate.
● Former State Representative Wes Rogers: “I trust State Representative Nurrenbern always puts our public schools, small businesses and the needs of our community first. We should all come together and support Maggie’s candidacy and work hard to ensure that Democrats keep this vital state senate seat.”
