Campaign themes

Zelle's website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

Economy and Jobs

  • Excerpt:"We need to review existing regulations and eliminate those that stifle expansion of existing businesses, hinder the creation of new businesses, and prevent new businesses from relocating to Missouri, while protecting consumers, investors, employees, and the environment."


  • Excerpt:"The State needs to properly support higher educations, and colleges and universities should work with local companies to identify employment needs and encourage placement of graduates. Our schools need to be graduating students who are ready to fill the entry level positions of Missouri employers."


  • Excerpt:"I’m opposed to eliminating the State Income Tax, and replacing it with a huge sales tax increase. The current proposal shifts the tax burden to the people who can least afford it, and does not generate sufficient revenue to even cover the current State needs."


  • Excerpt:"I am pro-life and support regulations that protect the rights of the unborn child. I will not support using tax dollars to fund abortions."

Gun control

  • Excerpt:"I support the Constitutional Right of citizens under the second amendment. I do not support efforts to limit the rights of individual hunters or fishers."
