Press Release: State Representative Maggie Nurrenbern Launches Campaign for State Senate District 17

Today, Missouri State Representative Maggie Nurrenbern, who was elected to represent House
District 15 in 2020, is announcing her campaign for State Senate District 17.

“I’ve always been proud to call the Northland home and I know we need leaders who will stand
up as a voice of moderation, bring people together and actually achieve results that make a
positive difference for our community. That’s exactly what I’ve done as a State Representative,
working across the aisle, I’ve worked to deliver real solutions and investments in education,
infrastructure and healthcare,” said State Representative Maggie Nurrenbern.

“Now, I’m running for State Senate because as a mom of three, former local public school
teacher and dedicated community volunteer, I have a renewed purpose to fight for great public
education for every kid in our state, create more economic opportunity, finally expand access to
affordable health care and keep our families safe. By working together, I know we can make the
Northland an even better place to live and raise a family.”

As a member of the House Budget Committee, State Representative Nurrenbern’s record of
bipartisan accomplishments includes passing $21.8 million toward increasing teacher pay in the
career ladder program and ensuring $8.7 million for the safety and security of state schools
serving students with disabilities. She’s also helped pass bipartisan plans to boost literacy and
fully fund transportation for public schools.

Local leaders are endorsing Rep. Nurrenbern’s campaign for Senate District 17:

Senate since 2018. Maggie exemplifies the Northland’s very best. She is a fearless
fighter for her constituents, and a tireless advocate for students, families and neighbors. I
know she will not only focus on the real issues that matter to Northlanders, but she’ll also
get results. This is especially important as extremists in the state legislature push
divisive and harmful policies that hurt our kids and undermine public education. I couldn’t
be more proud to endorse Maggie for State Senate.”

Nurrenbern’s experience as a dedicated community volunteer and proven record of
working with both parties to bring home meaningful investments in Clay County has been vital for improving our infrastructure and helping small businesses. I’m confident

public education, keeping us safe, and finding solutions to the biggest problems facing
our community. That’s why I’m launching Northland Forward PAC. I want to continue to
build on Maggie’s grassroots support and ensure Maggie is elected to the state senate.”

● Former State Representative Wes Rogers: “I trust that State Representative
Nurrenbern will always put our public schools, small businesses and the needs of our
community first. We should all come together and support Maggie’s candidacy and work
hard to ensure Democrats hold onto this vital state senate seat.”
