My name is Scott Sifton, and I have a big announcement to share.
I love Missouri. And I can’t sit back and watch our two senators embarrass our state. One of them — Josh Hawley — spent the weeks after the election spewing dangerous conspiracy theories and trying to overturn the will of the people. And on January 6th, he pumped his fist in support of the very people who rioted at the Capitol.
I know first-hand the challenges facing our working families. Growing up in Kansas City, my dad lost his job and we faced some tough times — we lost our home and even the family minivan. I started waiting tables at age 15 to help out, worked my way through college and then law school, eventually becoming a state legislator to help create opportunity for Missourians.
That kind of experience sticks with you.
I’ve taken on some of the toughest fights in Jefferson City, from going after corruption, defending women’s rights, standing up for equality and protecting Missouri workers.
I know this race won’t be easy. Republicans have a large, expansive network of corporate and special-interest money at their disposal. We have to send a clear message that Missouri is worth fighting for and that we are capable of so much better than what our current Senators show the nation.

My name is Ann Zimpfer and I am running for House Representative of the 95th district. I am running because I strongly believe that we need change in the 95th district. We need a candidate who truly wants to represent the folks in the 95th district.
I grew up in Cape Girardeau. My father taught at Southeast Missouri State University and my mother was President of the League of Women Voters during the 1970s. I graduated from SEMO with a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. I later completed my Master’s Degree in Education from Southwest Baptist University in Bolivar Missouri.
My husband and I are both involved in Team Activities For Special Kids, TASK. We have been active since its inception 24 years ago. Our eldest son was on TASK’s first T-Ball team for children with special needs. TASK has expanded, over the years, to serve over 400 families. We have served in many capacities with this nonprofit organization. My husband currently serves as the President of the Board of Directors and I teach cooking and STEM classes. I have also participated in their week long summer camp for over 15 years.
Since filing for
Representative we have been working on developing our campaign to have a strong
plan as we enter this race. I am excited about this run and the
opportunity to be a true representative for the people in Oakville.
