“Shepard said he does not plan to feature Hawley prominently in his own race, describing Hawley as “a symptom of a larger problem.” To start winning again, Shepard said Missouri Democrats should focus on a progressive, populist agenda, and on rebuilding their party infrastructure.”Roll CAll – Minor correction for Roll Call, I pointed to the populist agenda embraced by the Republicans like Hawley, not suggesting that we Democrats should be.
Folks, America is in the ICU. Anarchy visited us on January 6th. This wasn’t exclusively caused by Republicans. This was an indication that we have an even bigger problem with how the political game is played.
If you are of the opinion that the Democratic establishment is our primary ticket to flip Missouri, I’m not the right candidate for you.
However, if like myself,
- You’re sick and tired of the establishment’s abandonment of our interest.
- You’re frustrated by double-digit losses due to their negligence of former strongholds for our party.
- If it drives you nuts that the establishment takes pride in telling progressives we are what’s wrong with the party in our state.
- If you have a bad taste in your mouth from being excluded from meetings and told to be quiet when we dare to hold leadership accountable to the values of Trust, Authenticity, Accountability, and Leadership,
Then I am the candidate for you.
I believe in truth, transparency, integrity, democracy, humility, and empathy. When we love our neighbors and refuse to play a dirty game for the sake of winning power, we can change the game. Indeed, we can change the world. Missouri has what it takes to transform our country into the shining city on a hill, a beacon of democracy and hope for all! The establishment doesn’t believe it’s possible. So let’s show them.

Timothy, is a proud Missourian who grew up in Kearney and Excelsior Springs. His family’s roots go back to St. Joe, Gallatin, and Theodosia on the shores of Bull Shoals Lake. Tim is proud of the values that the people of Missouri taught him growing up.
Tim seeks to Restore Democracy, Reform Capitalism and Invest in Our Future. “Our Representative Democracy isn’t just at risk in America, it’s broken. In its current form, our democracy represents the rights of corporations and the super-wealthy before the rights of the American people. We have been living in a top-down corporatist system for far too long”. Tim is running to bring back ‘people up’ representation.
Tim is running to fight for justice, and for Missouri families to be able to thrive again in the face of the many challenges ahead of us. Be it the need for us to rally together in pursuit of expanding participation in our democracy to BIPOC people, and those working-class people, like his own family growing up. Tim wants equality for his daughter, his nieces and nephews, for his family’s multicultural, racial, and abled existence to thrive in a more free and fair world.

We are in the midst of the most significant economic transformation in the history of our country and the world. Our institutions are years behind the curve, and the majority of Americans are getting left behind.
It is time to build an economy that puts people at the center. My platform is built around the core idea that everything should serve ALL humans, not just those at the top.
Since the early 1980s, America has implemented a very unfair taxation system. The time has come for us to switch back to abundance. It is time that we unlocked humanity’s potential by moving our political discourse toward a mindset that there is enough to go around, and we do not need to fight for scraps. We need to fight for policies that will allow ordinary citizens and small and medium-sized businesses to get their heads up and plan for the future.
America has been heads down and focused in one direction for 40 years. Reaganism has its place as a short term medicine, but the manic adoption and diligence of how we’ve applied it has led to unsustainable imbalances in our economic system not seen in the United States since before the Great Depression. We need to transform our economy back into a healthy expression of capitalism. We’ve transformed from a healthy capitalist system to a system that heavily subsidizes corporate shareholders, otherwise known primarily as the 1%.
But, we aren’t stuck with this kind of financial folly in our social contract. This century is America’s for the taking, including the bottom 90% of the population. With our nation’s energy independence, food independence, a diverse and vibrantly, and growing population. We aren’t without some of the most significant challenges we’ve ever faced, not just as Americans, but as humans. These challenges are going to require us to transform our economy.
Transform Our Economy
The good thing about transforming our economy is that it creates vast new opportunities for wealth creation and innovation. So, rather than adopting a protectionist rear looking plan preferred by Republicans in government. It’s my firm belief that we should practice a core tenant of capitalism and embrace the change! One has to ask what exactly it is they’re trying to protect with all their worker facing rhetoric. Have they been able to save working-class American jobs? Or is the real result that they hand trillions of dollars to industry incumbents and billionaires who have no desire to use their profits to push this transformation themselves. We have a word for that kind of behavior in America, monopoly! We break those up. Doing so creates new jobs, distributes power, and ensures that innovation is able to take root rather than being stifled by incumbants.
When we have policy like the Green New Deal on the table, there’s no reason for us to lean into protecting elites with taxpayer subsidy. Instead we can lead the world in innovation and job creation once again.
We should bring an end to this new Gilded Age we’ve entered and re-ignite growth for the working classes. We can transform our economy to be more dynamic equitable for all Americans.
With economic transformation we can bring household savings in line with corporate savings with policies and new legislation aimed at bring equality to all American’s in our tax code, stimulus, and other social programs.
