Voters' Rights

Having immigrated to the U.S. as a child, my life path includes attending the United States Military Academy at West Point, serving in the Army before and after 9/11, and Law School at Washington University in St. Louis. I know first-hand the value of voting and why it is important for all Missourians to have their voice heard. Members of all parties deserve the right to a fair and equitable election.




Ballot Measures

Ballot initiatives have the added benefit of keeping voters engaged in the process and lead to higher voter turnout, and, as dark money continues to pervade our political system, initiatives help assure that politicians execute the will of voters.






Health Care

Yinka trusts that women are capable of making complex decisions about their own health care and lives without unnecessary interference from lawmakers. State after state are passing laws that interfere with a woman's ability to have a private relationship with her own physician; illegally tracking women's medical records; and insisting on scientifically unproven measures and even procedures that do not exist in medical science. Yinka will work to ensure that the practice of medicine is left to licensed health professionals, not elected officials.

Small Business and Entrepreneurs

The bedrocks of our state’s economic vibrancy are small businesses and entrepreneurs. I know that starting a business can’t be bogged down by red tape and we need smart, efficient government to compete with other states and other countries to attract entrepreneurs and their businesses. Businesses need resources to succeed and bureaucracy should not stand in the way of that success.

The ballot initiative petition process allows the people of Missouri to have a direct role in making meaningful policy changes, as well as holding our government and elected officials accountable. Ballot initiatives have the added benefit of keeping voters engaged in the process and lead to higher voter turnout, and, as big money continues to pervade our political system while initiatives allow citizens to compete for politicians attention.

SUPPORT OUR CAUSE

Yinka's story is an inspiring American dream come true. Yinka immigrated from Lagos, Nigeria to the U.S. at the age of seven; became a U.S. citizen; earned an appointment to and graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point; and served as a combat arms U.S. Army officer in tank units in two back-to-back overseas deployments to Kuwait--the second deployment in response to 9/11. Washington University Law School brought Yinka to Missouri. He worked in private practice at a global law firm, followed by service as a state prosecutor before serving as a senior VP at United Way. He then led as the second executive director of the nonprofit founded by the Ferguson Commission, Forward Through Ferguson.
