Words cannot describe how honored I am to be receiving the “Good Guy Award” at the 29th annual Torch Award ceremony from the Greater Kansas City Women’s Political Caucus. This means a lot to me, especially with it coming from the dozens of women I look up to serving and/or running for office in Missouri and Kansas. Register, donate, and attend this year’s ceremony to pay homage to the 100 year anniversary of the 19th amendment and honor the numerous women serving our community. - (All proceeds go to helping candidates endorsed by the caucus!)
