State Senate District 10

Stand with Jeanie

About Jeanie Riddle


I am guided by the values that make Missouri strong; faith in God, love of family, and preservation of the freedoms our constitution guarantees. I was born and raised with two brothers in Missouri. I attended Drury College in Springfield where I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Education. My career began in St. Louis working for Southwestern Bell Telephone Company as an accounting department supervisor.


In 1977, I moved to Callaway County and served the community by teaching and coaching in the South Callaway School District for 28 years. My time as a teacher and coach provided an in-depth knowledge of education policy and a keen understanding of the needs of Missouri families. I have two children who have both married and have blessed us with three grandsons..


I learned the value of service to community, the ethics of hard work, and the importance of personal integrity from my parents. Those values have been reinforced throughout my life. In 2006, I retired from a successful career in education. First elected in November 2008, I served three terms as a State Representative for Callaway County. Following my time in the Missouri House of Representatives, I was elected to the Missouri Senate to represent the 10th District which is composed of Audrain, Callaway, Lincoln, Monroe, Montgomery and Warren County.

Jeanie Riddle On The Issues:

Preserving Family Values

As the mother of two grown children and a grandmother to 3 boys, I fully understand the miracle and gift of life. With my strong faith, conservative convictions and personal passion for children, no one will be a better advocate for the unborn. From conception to natural end, I am 100% pro-life and will continue to defend those values.

Defending the 2nd Amendment

I am a strong advocate for 2nd Amendment rights guaranteed by our Constitution. I have been a longtime Life Member of the National Rifle Association. I understand the fundamental right of law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms. Over the course of my five years in the Missouri Legislature, I have personally advanced a successful pro 2nd amendment agenda that includes lowering the concealed carry age from 23 to 21.

Educating Missouri Children

As a retired school teacher and coach, education is a top priority. It is the door to Missouri’s future. Every child should have access to a world class education. College and vocational schools must be affordable. Jeanie has tirelessly fought for education, and will continue to do so as a leader in Missouri’s Legislature.
