State Senate and House races

MISSOURI SENATE, 9TH DISTRICT

Barbara Anne Washington

Barbara Anne Washington (D) is currently serving in the Missouri House of Representatives for District 23. She is endorsed by Sierra Club – Missouri Chapter, Missouri Cattlemen’s Association, Greater KC Building and Construction Trades Council, Freedom Inc., United Union of Roofers, Waterproofers & Allied Workers Local 20 and Greater KC Women’s Political Caucus. Washington has fought to increase the economic development in her district, preserve the 18th and Vine district, increase funding for education, and create better opportunities for healthcare. Her primary passions are criminal and juvenile justice reform, affordable housing and healthcare, including mental health.


“With the growing number of young people and immigrants moving into the Northeast we need additional funding, programs and resources for small businesses, affordable housing and affordable healthcare… District 9 needs a Senator that can continue the legacy of service and commitment to its citizens. We need someone experienced enough to be effective across party lines and engaging enough to bring results back to Jackson County. I am that person.”

Ryan Myers

Ryan Myers (D), real estate appraiser, will work toward providing resources to reduce crime and improve communities, funding for all public schools to advance learning and futures, creating jobs and rebuilding the economy without discrimination, and further COVID-19 relief programs for employees and small businesses. Myers is currently serving his first term as Raytown Alderman, and his second term as Mayor Pro Tem, where he has passed rental regulations to keep neighborhoods clean, healthy and safe; sponsored TIF reform, saving taxpayers nearly $2 million; and implemented the Board of Alderman Ethics code, bringing transparency and accountability to local government. Myers is passionate about affordable housing and property tax reform that focuses on equality. He plans to fight for more investment resources to bolster small businesses in the Northeast and the district as a whole.


“I want to be available and responsive to constituents in all parts of the 9th Senate District, bring positive changes to the entire senate district, such as TIF reform and rental regulations, similar to what I have already gotten done in Raytown.”

He is an elected member of the Jackson County Republican Central Committee, and was the Republican nominee for State Representative in the 23rd House District in 2017 and 2018 elections.


“I believe there are some things that transcend the political divide – good jobs, good schools, and equal opportunity for all. As your State Senator, I will rise above the partisan bickering and tirelessly champion real solutions for our community and the futures of our children.”

MISSOURI HOUSE, 23RD DISTRICT

Derron Black

Derron Black (D): plans to fight for workforce development, public safety, Medicaid expansion and implementing sustainable solutions.


“Our state is allowing people to die because of lack of access to affordable health coverage. Healthcare is a right and it’s time for Missouri to expand Medicaid as recommended by the Federal government. Medicare and Medicaid are programs that help our most vulnerable, our elders and the most impoverished.”

Michael Johnson

Michael Johnson (D) plans to work to secure adequate funding for all Kansas City Public Schools, expand access to quality healthcare for all Missourians, support local workforce development and small businesses, and advocate for safe and affordable family-friendly neighborhoods.
