Where is your money going?
The taxes collected by the State of Missouri are growing quickly, and it is vital to ensure that Your dollars will be used appropriately, with appropriate oversight. I believe it is the duty of the Legislature to ensure that we are only taking from your wallet the smallest amount necessary to fund government functions. I support tax cuts to offset our rapid tax collection growth, as our citizens deserve to use their own paychecks to fulfill the needs of their families.

The Federal Government, as well as several Local Governments have attempted to inflict health care policy that includes mandated vaccines. Mark Matthiesen does not believe that ANY government has the right to mandate a vaccine in order to hold a job, go to school, or any other function of life.
Are your Taxes Skyrocketing?
Mark Matthiesen is focused on ensuring that our taxes are not increasing beyond the needs of our government.
Recently many County Assessors have seized the opportunity to take more of your money by over-assessing the value of personal property based on a temporary market shift. Other Assessors are altering property classifications to overtax your Real Property. Local taxing districts are finding new ways to spend your money as their revenue increases while still telling you that they don’t have enough money. I will work to end these abuses!
