Why I Am Running
Welcome. My name is Jean Pretto and I am running to be your next State Representative in the 94th District. On this website I have posted a detailed biography, but in summary let me say that I was born and have lived my entire life in Oakville. I have spent much of my life as a school teacher. As an extension of my belief in public service, and my concern for helping young people succeed in life, I ran for and was elected to the school board in 2014 and 2017. That public service experience, serving the people and giving back to the community, is what sets me apart from my opponent in the November 6th election.
Over the past few years, I have seen the callous disregard of some in Jefferson City when it comes to adequately funding our schools. I have seen them attack the hard-won rights of workers, attempting to drive down wages at the behest of greedy corporations. I have seen them ignore the needs of our seniors, of veterans, of the disabled, and those struggling to make ends meet.
Frankly I have seen enough. It is time to clean house in Jefferson City.
So now you know what has motivated me to run for State Representative and why I hope you will support my campaign. Your vote is the most important thing I can ask of you. But if you would also like to volunteer, would like a yard sign, could host a coffee, or make a donation that would be a tremendous help as well.

I am always as close as your phone or an e-mail if you have a question, or I can be of any service. Thank you!
