Respect your vote
Helena believes elected officials should respect the people's decisions on ballot votes. Helena believes in the democratic process and not political tricks.
The MO Legislature should stop spending time and taxpayer money to overturn our vote.
West County is full of extremely educated voters. District 100 Voters overwhelmingly voted YES for CLEAN MO, YES for Minimum Wage reforms, and NO for RTW.
- Incumbent Grier voted to ignore the will of the people on CLEAN MO. Grier voted for "Dirty Missouri" because thinks his political bosses know more than the intelligent, well-informed voters of our district.
Keep our schools strong
We know that educational opportunity is the key to future success in life.
Locally, our children are fortunate to have some of the best schools in the state.
As our schools adapt to a COVID-19 reality, we must protect the students and taxpayers of Parkway and Rockwood School Districts from budget cuts, and keep our schools strong.
When it comes to charter schools, some do offer an alternative for families in areas with failing schools. However, charter school expansion state-wide means cutting Parkway and Rockwood budgets and sharing that money with for-profit schools that do not answer to you, the tax-payer.
- Incumbent Grier has voted for charter school expansion which, if passed by the legislature will likely bring charter schools to Ballwin and Chesterfield, and cut money out of Parkway and Rockwood budgets.
Improve MO Healthcare
Missouri’s healthcare system is outdated and inefficient. Shifting to a value-based care system will save lives and reduce costs.*
Helena wants to improve care for all Missourians with a state-wide opioid database, and policies that reduce Missouri's shockingly high infant mortality rates, and a cap on costs for life-saving prescriptions such as epi pens, asthma inhalers, and insulin.
- Incumbent Grier has repeatedly voted against regulations.
Helena wants to address Missouri's high maternal mortality rate which is on par with some 3rd world countries.
- Incumbent Grier voted against a modest bill to investigate Missouri's horrible maternal mortality rate. Studies in other states have shown that maternal mortality is not correlated to financial status or drug abuse, but to the fact that pregnant African American women receive inadequate care due to racial bias.
Keeping our citizens healthy must be a priority for the state since our families are the power behind our industries.
- On March 18th 2020, incumbent Grier voted against giving Governor Parson authority to spend $87 Million to purchase Personal Protection Equipment and Ventilators, instead supported waiting for Federal Dollars to help our doctors and nurses and COVID 19 patients.

Defend Reproductive Freedom
The government should not be involved in the deeply personal medical decisions women and men face, and should not prevent people from accessing the care they need in accordance with their own religious beliefs.
Education and affordable access to birth control is key to preventing unplanned pregnancies and reducing abortion rates.
Preserving access to safe, legal abortion care especially in cases of incest and rape saves women's lives.
Helena will defend the legal right to access contraception, fertility treatment, IVF, and abortion care.
- Incumbent Grier voted for the 8-week abortion ban without exceptions for rape and incest.
- Missouri's extremist laws require a medically unnecessary 72 hour delay, a medically unnecessary pelvic exam, and bans private insurance coverage.
- The pro-life movement has publicly opposed Medicaid expansion on the grounds that more women will have access to contraception which they believe is abortion.
Helena will work to prevent tax-payer dollars from propping up fake women's health centers who provide medically inaccurate information to women.
- Current Missouri law also protects these facilities from legal prosecution for providing medically inaccurate information.
