About Sarah Unsicker

Jefferson City needs smart, dedicated individuals who will fight for the people of Missouri.

I’m running for re-election as your State Representative in House District 83 to continue to make Missouri a better place for children and families.

My passion is helping people who are disenfranchised by current systems. I graduated from Washington University Law School in 2005, and my practice has focused on family and education law.

I have represented families whose cries for help for their disabled children have been ignored. I have seen moms struggling with addiction turn their lives around to become good parents. I have handled debt collection cases, where I saw the gamesmanship debt collectors use to profit off people who are already struggling. And I have handled guardianship cases where family dynamics cause further damage to the most vulnerable family members.

I have been an active member of CHADD (Children and Adults with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder), where I served as chapter coordinator in 2014 and 2015. As coordinator, I developed community connections and worked to expand the chapter’s visibility in St. Louis. I am a member of the National Women’s Political Caucus, Moms Demand Action, and Webster Groves Toastmasters. I am an active member of my church, and participate with Metropolitan Congregations United through my church.

As your Representative, I work to make the 83rd District, the St. Louis region, and Missouri as a whole, better places to live and work. These needs include quality schools; access to healthcare; and common-sense gun laws. I will work for ethics and lobbying reform to make sure the Legislature works for all Missourians. If you elect me to the Missouri House of Representatives, you can be sure that I will work for you.

Our campaign is active in working to ensure all places that take care of children overnight have government oversight. Currently, some of these facilities are exempt from licensure, and some of these license-exempt facilities have been accused of horrific abuses of children. Requiring schools like Agapé boarding school in Stockton to be licensed would allow Missouri to make sure children at these schools are well cared for. Missouri has filed an injunction to shut Agapé down, and our Attorney General needs to be doing everything he can to help these kids.
