LAKE OZARK, MO – With a proven track record of upholding Republican values in the state house, Dr. Lisa Thomas announces her re-election campaign for District 123. A staunch defender of the unborn, constitutional rights, and economic freedom, she brings a distinctive blend of medical expertise and legislative acumen to the office of state representative.

“With the principles of our nation under constant assault, I stand strong in defending the freedoms we hold dear,” Dr. Thomas stated. “From the sanctity of life to our God-given First and Second Amendment rights, my goal remains clear: to serve as a shield against the tide of government overreach and to guarantee our liberties are preserved for generations to come.”

Drawing on her extensive background as a psychiatrist and her tenure in public service, Dr. Thomas has been a vocal advocate of health care reform, mental health issues, and policies that strengthen public safety and support for our veterans. Her leadership roles, notably as Vice-Chairman of the Health and Mental Health Policy Committee, have seen her leading at the forefront of critical legislative efforts that impact not only the district, but the state at large.

Her record of legislative success and collaboration is demonstrative of her ability to navigate complex legislative issues and effectively fight for conservative causes.

“Now, more than ever, we need someone in the legislature that will fight for a Missouri where liberty flourishes, families and businesses thrive, and the values that unite us all are upheld. When I am re-elected, I plan to continue pushing forward every day to make that vision a reality,” concluded Dr. Thomas.
