Senator Mary Elizabeth Coleman Takes Oath of Office 

JEFFERSON CITY — State Sen. Mary Elizabeth Coleman, R-Arnold, took the oath of office and was sworn in as a member of the 102nd General Assembly on Jan. 4, the first day of the 2023 legislative session. Focused on helping Jefferson County families, Sen. Coleman represents Missouri’s 22nd Senatorial District.

A mother of six who prioritizes education and fighting for Missouri’s children, Sen. Coleman received her Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Saint Louis University and her Juris Doctorate from St. Mary’s University School of Law. Senator Coleman previously served on the Arnold City Council from 2013 to 2015 and represented parts of Jefferson and St. Louis counties in the Missouri House of Representatives from 2018 to 2022.

“State government should be working for Missouri’s working families with solution-focused policies that actually make a difference in their lives,” said Sen. Coleman. “We can give parents the freedom to send their kids to the school of their choice; we can reduce taxes for groceries, at a time when prices are higher than ever due to inflation; we can reduce the tax rate for essential products that women and moms need; and we can make our safety net programs more efficient at the lowest cost possible to help the people who need it the most.”

The First Regular Session of the 102nd General Assembly runs Jan. 4 through May 12.
