Republican candidate for Missouri State Treasurer,
Sarah Steelman, stopped by The Landmark office on
Thursday afternoon to share her views and plan of
action if elected to office. Steelman, who has represented
the Rolla area as a state senator, is running against
Democrat Mark Powell for state treasurer on Nov.
2. During her tenure as a state senator, she has
been a supporter of the Missouri Sunshine Law and
helped pass legislation to tighten the law, which
governs open records and meetings of public bodies.
Steelman, 46, won the GOP primary in August over
a large field of candidates. She says if elected
treasurer, she will work to "bring our money
home from New York, to invest in Missouri to create
new jobs and economic growth, which will mean more
dollars for Missouri's classrooms, better roads
and health care.

candidate for state treasurer, was in the area
as she continues her campaign.
