I’m Catherine Dreher and I’m the Libertarian Candidate for Missouri State Senate District 10. I am a resident of unincorporated Lincoln County and a homeschool mom. I’m married with three children and I love living in the country. I have a Master’s Degree in Professional Communication from the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
I lived in St. Charles County for 12 years before moving to Lincoln County almost five years ago. It was the lure of country living and lack of overbearing ordinances that brought my family to Lincoln County.
I believe in the principles of self-ownership, individual liberty, and limited government. These aren’t just principles I believe in, but I’ve also worked to protect and promote these at the local level. When I lived in St. Charles County, I was part of a very small group of individuals who worked to get Red Light Cameras banned in the county. Obviously, we were successful! When asked, I ran for Cottleville Fire Protection Board because people wanted to see someone on the board who was interested in protecting how tax dollars were being spent. I served on the County Board of Zoning Adjustment and the Cottleville Planning and Zoning Board so I could protect private property rights. Working within local government to secure our liberties is a long-standing passion of mine.
When I moved to Lincoln County, I immediately looked for the best way I could get involved in local politics. That’s when I began working on Mike Wood’s campaign for Lincoln County Prosecuting Attorney. I helped lead his door-knocking efforts. I knew it was an important race for the community and a place where I could see liberty triumph over corruption.
Polls show that 75% of Americans are dissatisfied with the state of the Country, yet it’s a state voters put us in year after year. As a Libertarian candidate, I offer people another choice. People who have felt marginalized by the two party system. People who are tired of promises being broken. I have a history of standing up for liberty, even when it is unpopular. I am ready to take my fight for liberty to the State Capitol on your behalf. I ask for your vote on November 8, 2022, so I can stand up for you.
