Bethany Mann grew up in Foristell, MO. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry from the University of Illinois and started her career working as an intern at the Environmental Protection Agency. Bethany is passionate about education, science, and bringing people together.
Her goal is to make the 3rd District and Missouri a state leader when it comes to important issues that build the middle class and strengthen Missouri families. She believes in equal and fair bargaining rights for farmers, advancing developments in our infrastructure from broadband technology to roads and bridges, and ensuring that our students receive equal access to high-quality education and fully-funded public schools.
Our state is currently tailing behind in many areas. Our students deserve a quality education and support from pre-k to secondary schooling. It is time for full and equal funding for our educational system and ensure every student the best opportunity to succeed.
Investment in our infrastructure is an investment in our future and success. Across the state we see failing bridges, roadways, water and electrical grids. The federal government is investing billions in infrastructure and we must claim our fair share of that funding and invest in our rural areas not just in cities and close surrounding areas.
Missourians deserve access to quality, affordable healthcare services to support their physical and mental well-being and to have financial security. During the pandemic, thousands across the state have died from Covid complications, and thousands more have been temporarily or permanently disabled. The mental health impact of Covid and the stress of the pandemic continue to affect nearly every community from the patient to the first responders, overwhelmed with short staff and unbearably long hours and support.
Everyone eligible to vote should have the ability to register to vote, to cast a ballot and to have that ballot properly recorded, we must remove barriers and roadblocks in voting rights and ways voters can vote. Polls, mail in, and drop box options should be expanded to ensure each voter has an option and every voter's voice heard.
We must take stake and recognize the environmental changes that are having effects on our state, from our farmers to our economy. To be prosperous we must realize how important clean air and water are and take steps to ensure we take steps to prepare for increases in weather events, with moving toward renewable energy we would create new jobs and new industries.
Abortion is healthcare. Access to healthcare saves lives. Equitable access to healthcare is a human right, and no one should experience discrimination because of their gender. I support the Women’s Health Protection Act, ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment, Medicare For All, and expanding access to virtual and telehealth services.
Senator Graham proposed a dangerous ban on abortion after 15 weeks. He inaccurately called this legislation a late-term abortion ban, when in reality it’s a bad policy funded by religious extremists and corporate lobby groups. It’s time to stop bad bills from killing Americans because of weak leadership. This federal ban would further strip away […]
The universe unfolds as it should, and it brings blessings and responsibilities at pivotal times. The Mann Family will welcome Baby Boy #2 early next year. We expect him to arrive February 4th. I’m tremendously excited to meet him. Little RC will make an awesome big brother, and I can’t wait to see all of […]
I have spent a lot of time in laboratories. I started my career as an intern at the EPA testing water, soil, and air for heavy metal contaminants. I learned early on how shamelessly big corporations pollute our environment, fully knowledgable of the human health impact of their greed. After that, I worked as a […]
