Other facts

My husband, Gerry Greiman, and I have lived in this district for more than 25 years. Currently, I am an employee rights lawyer in private practice and National ACLU Board member. I am the past president of the state and local Women's Political Caucus and past president of the ACLU of Eastern Missouri. I am the only female lawyer in the MO House of Representatives, and the Ranking Democratic member of the Rules Committee. I will work together with other legislators to pass a "Turner Fix" and fully fund the foundation formula. Without a stronger emphasis on education, we cannot attract new jobs and grow the economy. I am also a strong advocate for equality, labor and women's rights.
