Candidate Nicole Galloway | 'Ladybird, Collected'
The Democratic candidate lays out her plan for Missouri and how a Lawrence diner evolved from serving customers to serving those in need during the pandemic.
Segment 1, beginning at 3:48: Gov. Parson's Democratic challenger says she has a better plan for running Missouri — including fighting the pandemic.
If she becomes the governor of Missouri, State Auditor Nicole Galloway says she would issue a statewide mask mandate, increase rapid testing and initiate a rigorous statewide contact tracing program. Galloway called out Governor Mike Parson for a lack of leadership.
Segment 2, beginning at 34:52: "Ladybird, Collected" is the story of how a tiny diner in Lawrence changed during the pandemic.
Feeding those in need has always been a part of Ladybird Diner's business plan. But because of the pandemic, owner Meg Heriford has now converted to a community kitchen full-time. Heriford is hoping sales of her book of essays called "Ladybird, Collected" will allow the diner's mission to continue.
