As the daughter and granddaughter of small business owners in St. Louis, Ann is proud to be a part of the American Dream which rewards hard work, innovation and risk. She knows first-hand that there is nothing more destructive to small business than uncertainty. The current Administration's focus on over-regulation makes it difficult for business owners to follow and comply with the law, thereby setting businesses up for failure. Ann understands that in order for businesses to grow and prosper entrepreneurs need certainty in government policies, most especially in the areas of tax, healthcare and energy.
If Ann is elected to Congress, one of her biggest priorities will be to fight for job creators, whether it is a one-man shop or a large corporation. Ann will make decisions that minimize over-regulation and promote certainty so entrepreneurs can spend more time growing their business. Ann does not want businesses to simply survive in the Second District. She wants them to thrive.
