Renee Hoagenson for American Values
Renee believes the family unit to be the moral foundation of our Nation. For generations we have instilled in our children the American values of independence, compassion, and strength of character that have made our nation great. However, due to stagnating wages and good paying manufacturing jobs going overseas many Missourians have had to work longer hours and in many cases more than one job just to make ends meet. This has led to less time spent together as a family teaching our children the American values upon which our country has been built.
Renee believes to reverse the decline of family values we must first create more good paying jobs and increase wages for the thousands of Missourians whose wage increases have been outpaced by inflation. When our parents can afford to spend more time with their children they will have the time to help rebuild the moral foundation of our country.
