Your Voice
Our Future

I never thought I would run for public office. But I’m tired of watching candidates use language that only resonates with people who already agree with them as they leave behind a whole group of people who want most of the exact same things. Our country is divided. That has never been clearer in our lifetimes. When I talk to people across our state, regardless of party, I hear a lot of the same values. Politicians these days don’t seem to actually hear what we’re saying and most of them aren’t trying to bring us together.

I’m running a campaign that puts people above politics and focuses on fixing our broken government system.  Throughout my career, I’ve been fortunate to work throughout the region with the great doctors and scientists, entrepreneurs and computer programmers, and painters, carpenters, and union workers of our state. I pride myself on my ability to listen to experts and to find practical solutions to meaningful problems.

I’ve lived in Missouri my entire life.  My wife, son, and I spend weekdays in St. Louis and most weekends at my family’s farm outside of Washington, MO.  Regardless of where I am, you can usually find me deep in conversation with someone at a coffee shop, gas station, or restaurant, getting to know the people of our state.  While I love to talk, I also love to listen, and I’m fortunate to know people across our state and to have heard what they want.

And it’s really pretty simple.

We all want to be treated with dignity and respect.  We all want access to affordable healthcare. We all want high-quality education for our kids. We all want good paying jobs. No one wants the government telling them what they can and can’t do, but everyone realizes that we need accountability and to be responsible in making sure that people are safe. I’ve also found that most people are fairly reasonable when you drop the charged rhetoric and just talk face to face.

Politics has gotten in the way of the government making our lives better.  I decided to run because I love helping people solve hard problems.

In the end, that’s what I want in a representative. Missourians deserve a candidate who works to give everyone the sense of security, safety, and community. As your senator, I will work towards those ends in everything I do.

I hope that you take the time to get to know me—and more importantly—that you give me the privilege of getting to know you.

Accountability and Transparency

We deserve to be represented by legislators who tell us why they vote for or against a bill.  We are entitled to hold our elected officials accountable. That’s core to Spencer’s beliefs. He will always act in the best interest of Missourians and he’ll always explain himself truthfully. He’ll make sure everyone has a seat at the table, that everyone has equal access to the ballot box, and that all of our tax dollars are spent wisely and justly. Most importantly, you can hold him to it.

Investing in our future

We need to leave our world in a better place for future generations. That means taking care of our planet while creating an economy in which all Americans can thrive. It means providing quality education and access to health care, and investing in infrastructure, agriculture, technology, and innovation in Missouri.

A Government That Works for ALL Missourians

Too many people have been left behind.  The middle class is shrinking. Systemic injustice makes it impossible for many to thrive. All the while, the Government seems to work for the benefit of a select few. It’s long past time for things to change. People aren’t looking for a hand-out, they are looking for a government that cares about us – each and every one of us – and helps us live safe, happy, healthy lives.
