Lee’s Summit, MO – Lee’s Summit mom and social worker Keri Ingle will be hosting a kick-off reception for her campaign for state representative in Missouri’s 35th House District.
“As a wife and mother of two, I see the challenges Missourians face; high healthcare costs, underfunded schools, a criminal justice system struggling to keep our citizens safe, and a legislature which prefers divisiveness and sensationalism to pragmatic solutions to real-life problems,” said Ingle. “I’m running to make sure we’re fighting for a better future for our children and a stronger local community.”

With a background in criminal justice, Keri Ingle currently works as a licensed Master Social Worker at KU Medical Center. In the past, she has worked with the Jackson County Children’s Division as a children’s advocate and has been focused on protecting children and strengthening families in Jackson County. She has been an active volunteer at her son’s school as a room mom and PTA member. She grew up in a military family and moved to Lee’s Summit several years ago with her husband, Kenny, in search of a growing community and a great public school system for her kids.
“My background in criminal justice and children’s advocacy has helped me focus my campaign on issues impacting families in the 35th House District, such as drug treatment and suicide prevention, safe learning environments for children, and better mental health services,” said Ingle. “We need our leaders in Jefferson City to be protecting funding for our local schools, fighting for better services for our children and seniors, and holding government accountable overall.”
