Campaign themes


Webber's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]


  • Excerpt: "In order for Missouri to remain competitive, our children must succeed academically from pre-K to graduate school. Our students need to have strong public schools staffed by well-trained, well-paid teachers."


  • Excerpt: "I will fight to roll back Governor Blunt's irresponsible Medicaid cuts, and continue to work until every Missourian has quality coverage."


  • Excerpt: "I will work to re-stimulate our stagnating economic growth by investing in infrastructure improvements and by attracting business investment to the state."


  • Excerpt: "I believe all public construction projects should pay workers the prevailing wage. The advantages of doing so go beyond just treating people fairly. It also increases worker productivity and allows responsible local contractors to compete on an even playing field."


  • Excerpt: "I oppose big business attempts to circumvent their responsibilities through so called "audit privilege," which absolves them of their obligations if they report environmental damage that they have caused."
