Absentee Ballot Signature Verification
When people are voting absentee, we must confirm that the name on the envelope is the person that cast the ballot, that is why we must have signature verification for absentee ballots, just as we do for those voting in person.
Citizens Only Voting
Cities in several states have allowed non-citizens to vote in certain elections. The right and privilege to vote in this state should be reserved only for citizens of the United States that are residents of Missouri. We must prevent a rogue city from allowing non-citizens and illegal aliens from voting in local elections.
Missouri Elections Sovereignty
In 2021, the Democrat controlled congress filed as their number one priority an attempt to federalize elections. In response, I authored the Missouri Elections Sovereignty Act that would declare our elections in Missouri, ours to run. Any attempt to federalize the state elections would be met with resistance and not be recognized in Missouri.
Supporting Our Businesses
Small business is the heartbeat of Missouri’s economy. Over half of all jobs in this state are in privately held small business. I’m a small business owner myself. In 2010 I started up a carpet cleaning business with a friend. In 2013 I became the sole owner of it. I know how much paperwork there is involved in starting a business. As Secretary of State, I will work to make it easy for people to start businesses, reduce the red tape, and allow them to succeed.
Support Our First Responders
Our Law Enforcement Officers need our support now more than ever. They took an oath to keep our communities safe and go to work each day knowing they may not return home. Our society’s continuing trend toward a complete lack of respect for law enforcement along with the radical calls to defund the police are dangerous and reckless. The rule of law is dependent on proper enforcement and I will always stand up against those calling to defund the police. I am proud to stand with our police and proudly back the blue. I am proud to be the only candidate in this race endorsed by the Missouri Fraternal Order of Police as well as St. Charles County Sheriff Scott Lewis.
When it comes to libraries and the materials it offers, I will follow a simple rule. If you cannot read it out loud or show the pictures on the house floor or in a school board meeting, it does not belong in a place that is accessible to our children.
Investments and Securities
Some investment firms have decided that maximizing returns may not be the most important thing for their clients. The latest thing is to maximize their ESG score, that’s Environmental Social and Governance. Currently there is a rule that requires firms to disclose to their clients when they are seeking to maximize their ESG score instead of maximizing returns. The house has passed this as legislation, but the senate has not. Until it is passed as law, I will keep this rule on the books.
The right to life is one of our most sacred rights and no person has a right to end another life. The people have charged our government with protecting life and liberty, and that protection includes the unborn. Adam will always support protecting life at all stages.
Protecting Your 2nd Amendment Rights
A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.
Adam will fight to maintain the 2nd Amendment by opposing any attempt to limit or restrict the people’s right to keep and bear arms. With the dangerous calls to defund and destroy the police gaining traction in some cities, we see new examples as to why our 2nd Amendment right is nonnegotiable.
