    Doris Elliott, Dem.
    Education BA in Psychology and Master of Education in Guidance and Counseling and is a licensed professional counselor in the state of Missouri
    Professional background I was a business owner for 13 years which has given me fiscal and budgeting experience. I have worked in the mental health field for 15 years as a case worker, counselor and as an administrator. I've worked in the local mental health office for Morgan and Moniteau counties.
    Personal background I have a wonderful husband. We live on a farm in rural Morgan County. I have one son and one granddaughter.
    Other activities I volunteer at World Craft and Thrift weekly. I have also been caring for my aunt and my mother who have been very ill. I have been on the board of the Morgan County Health Center since 1999 and have been on the West Central Opportunity Board which oversees HUD and emergency funding.
    I am running because I know what the job entails. I know it's a 24/7 job and I'd love to do it. I have compassion for the wards, and I want to see them having the most fulfilling life possible. I think I've been a wonderful advocate for clients the last 15 years and would like to continue that. People who can no longer speak for themselves need someone who can be a strong advocate.
    Page 2 of 2 - Vote for me because I think I do have experience and knowledge in order to do this job because I've worked with the incapacitated and disabled population of Morgan County for the last 15 years. And I do know most of the public administrator case load. I've worked closely with the public administrator for the past 12 years.
